Cory Maye is on death row, despite the fact that his was a clear case of self-defense.
Let's summarize: Cops mistakenly break down the door of a sleeping man, late at night, as part of drug raid. Turns out, the man wasn't named in the warrant, and wasn't a suspect. The man, frigthened for himself and his 18-month old daughter, fires at an intruder who jumps into his bedroom after the door's been kicked in. Turns out that the man, who is black, has killed the white son of the town's police chief. He's later convicted and sentenced to death by a white jury. The man has no criminal record, and police rather tellingly changed their story about drugs (rather, traces of drugs) in his possession at the time of the raid.When the righty-leaning site Instapundit and a left-leaning site like Pandagon both agree on something, it's worth shouting it out. DON'T LET MISSISSIPPI KILL CORY MAYE FOR LEGALLY DEFENDING HIMSELF!!!
