One more word on "Tookie"

The media talking heads over represented the "pro Tookie" side of the debate yesterday. As I watch one pompous, over paid, self righteous commentator after another, something struck me. Just 8 months earlier these same Tookie defenders were advocating Terry Schiavo's right to die. With the exception of Jesse Jackson, who did defend Terry's right to LIVE, they were all calling for the painful murder of Terry. A woman, who's inability to speak for herself, lost her battle. Dehydration seems much more inhumane than lethal injection. Speculation over Tookies guilt remains, however there is no doubt regarding Terrys innocence. Doesn't it seem their moral compass needs to be adjusted?
