The state of Arkansas was allowed to execute one Ledell Lee, who was convicted of the 1993 murder of Debra Reese. It took 24 years, but they finally managed it.
Here in Oregon, one Deshaun Swanger was apprehended after the 24 year-old poured gasoline on a 69 year-old man in a Denny's restaurant and set him on fire. The old gent is in critical condition at last report.
Quanice Hayes, a 17 year-old who committed an armed robbery, several break-ins, and then when tracked down by police, refused to comply with orders and reportedly reached several times for his waist-band before being shot, is still dead. Some folks are still outraged that a grand jury found the shooting justified.
They all had rather interesting first names. Why their single "moms" would saddle kids with names like those remains a mystery.
