They committed nothing BUT crimes.

Just because the wealthy and connected have decided since Watergate to not prosecute the crimes of the former administrations, doesn't mean they didn't happen.

Well Said......Anyone convicted of first degree murder regardless of their color, should be put to death within one year of their conviction, not 10, 16, or 20 years down the road. The taxpayers should be saddled with years of BS appeals, give them one and then strap`em to the gurney, hang`em or assemble the firing squad.
JUST GIT`ER DONE..........

Here is a list of the people who were exonerated in the last five years after being convicted and sent to death row. There are 19 innocent people who in the last five years would now be dead under your plan. And that is just the last five years.
