NH AG Kelly Ayotte hit with racial bias claim in Death Penalty case.

And so there it was -- and is -- right on the Front Page of today's Nashua Telegraph, this feature in which Michael Addison's lawyers said in a 3 hour hearing yesterday that
"The death penalty is Unconstitutional, primitive and tainted with racial bias."

Checking the KingCast files it appears that I accurately predicted such challenges back on 6 November, 2006 in this post, with the lead "Racism riddles the application of the U.S. Death Penalty."

And of course I started this thread on it at the Nashua Telegraph online forums, with 7,400 views because these are some of the most compelling issues of our time, not "American Idle," or whatever.
