The unending campaign of liberal lies aimed at stopping capital punishment

Troy Davis was executed yesterday, while liberal cried injustice. In a column published yesterday before the execution, Ann Coulter wrote:

Fifty-nine percent of Americans now believe that an innocent man has been executed in the last five years. There is more credible evidence that space aliens have walked among us than that an innocent person has been executed in this country in the past 60 years, much less the past five years.

I believe that about five years, or even 30 years, given how difficult capital punishment now is in this country. But is it true about 60 years?

Coulter continues:

It’s nearly impossible to receive a death sentence these days—unless you do something completely crazy like shoot a cop in full view of dozens of witnesses in a Burger King parking lot, only a few hours after shooting at a passing car while exiting a party.

That’s what Troy Davis did in August 1989. Davis is the media’s current baby seal of death row.

Here is Coulter in June 2000 on the ever-changing arguments liberals use to delegitimize capital punishment.
