May 20–Execution of Quintin Phillipe Jones Carried Out

May 20th—Execution of Quintin Phillipe Jones Carried Out

A few days ago I posted about the upcoming execution of Quintin Phillipe Jones. I urged people to write the governor of Texas and ask that his sentence be changed to life in prison. I did that. A hundred and seventy thousand people signed the petition asking the governor for that change.

The state of Texas executed him on May 19th.

Suleika Jaouad, the journalist who has been in communication with him for twelve years, was quoted in the US Sun: “The world is not a better place because Quin is gone.”

And for me, that is the reality. The death penalty adds another layer of violence to the society, and worse still, it is carried out BY the society.

Gandhi once said “Evil means, even for a good end, produce evil results.”

And Winslow Myers in his book Living Beyond War wrote: The means are the ends in the making.

For me, it is not justice. It is violence.
