    Texas executes man in 1998 dragging death [Updated] - latimes.com
    <excerpt>
    The night he was killed, Byrd had accepted a ride home from a white man he knew, Shawn Berry, then 24, and two of Berry's friends -- John King, then 23, and Lawrence Brewer, then 31. King and Brewer were later identified as white supremacists.

    Brewer, now 44, was the one scheduled for execution.

    Instead of taking Byrd home, the men drove him down a remote county road, beat him unconscious, urinated on his body, chained him by his ankles to the truck and dragged him for three miles. When the truck made a hard turn at a bend in the road, Byrd's head struck a cement culvert and he was decapitated. The three men then dumped his remains in front of an African American cemetery and went to a barbecue.

    I remember that case. The details were a little on the sickening side.

    I wonder why the Perry haters are not all over this one.

    They're seeing another star rise to punish more.

    A just execution, no whining from the left on this one though? ......


    Perry should have told that faggot Brian Williams " I'll sleep great at night knowing Lawrence Brewer will be put to death, how do you sleep at night supporting a less severe penalty for people like this Mr. Williams?" ..... :eusa_whistle:
