In “Political ploy or ready to die?,” blogger Free Man in Kentucky questions Attorney General Jack Conway’s motives for trying to rush through the execution of Gregory Wilson. Wilson has an IQ of 62 and had incompetent representation at trial.
“Why is Jack trying to expedite the murder of a man who seems to have never received a fair trial?,” the Kentucky blogger asks about the state’s attorney general. He also questions how much Conway is concerned about justice:
Jack Conway also sees the way we deal out justice is fair. The facts are simple though, if you are a black person who murders a white person you are more likely to get death than a white person who killed a black person. So, why would someone who cares about Justice rush this execution. Maybe there is evidence of a pretty fair shake for Mr. Wilson?
Free Man in Kentucky also cites Amnesty International’s call for Wilson’s sentence to be commuted to live in prison.
