How Much Do Black Child Lives Matter?

Marian Wright Edelman

I strongly oppose capital punishment which Blanton and his evil co-conspirators so viciously inflicted. But I do support punishment which at least tries to proximate his heinous crime. This prisoner snuffed out four sacred child lives and escaped punishment for decades. He should die in prison for his inhumane atrocious crime.
