Texas kills and gives the nation the finger.

Texas Governor Rick Perry (R) has delayed the investigation in to his state’s murder of Cameron Todd Willingham. An independent panel was assembled to look into and issue a report on the forensic evidence originally submitted at the Willingham’s trial. Well, Rick Perry was sure that the panel would find that the criminal justice system in the Republic of Texas was a farce. So, he gutted the panel, firing 3 of the members 48 hours before the hearings were set to begin. So far, no word on when a full panel will be commissioned or when they will be ready to begin their investigation.
The folks at firedoglake are thinking Perry’s actions in this case may be criminal. Shocking.
I think it is fair to say, at least generally, that in America we don’t have a Justice System. We just have a system.
