Statement of asian pacific americans of conscience on the impending execution of troy davis | Activism, society and multiculturalism | Scoop.it

Desde entonces, estoy totalmente en contra de la pena de muerte. En este caso además le acompaña la injusticia, la ineptitud y la sinrazón. Que si hay un Dios en el cielo, nos perdone todos nuestros barbáricos pecados.
