Drug Raid Goes Wrong; Blogger Defeats Death Penalty

Kinda hard to write a headline that really covers the case.

Suffice it to say that a blogger, Radley Balko, seems to have prevented the State of Mississippi from executing a convict who was found guilty of murdering a cop.

But that's hardly all there is to the story.

Seems that this cop was the first man in on one of those "wrong address" drug raids; he was not wearing anything resembling a uniform; and when Maye found out that the rest of the group was the cops, he surrendered.

There are a couple of good points here that someone ought to ponder.
