It turns out that Roger Coleman was guilty of rape and murder in 1982 after all.
He adamantly maintained his innocence up until the moment of execution in 1992, and gathered a gaggle of the usual suspects to promote his “cause.” Since his death they’ve been tireless in promoting his innocence.
Governor Warner arranged to give them what they wanted: proof. Now it turns out they were wrong. Do you think think their faces will be red? Do you think they’ll be any less shrill with the next one?
As Michael Paranzino, president of Throw Away the Key, said
|Stop the presses: it turns out that rapists and killers are also liars. Roger Keith Coleman, like every killer on death row, professed his innocence until the very moment he took his last breath. The only problem was, prominent liberals fell for Coleman’s lies hook, line and sinker. New DNA tests released today show that the likelihood that the DNA found in the victim was not Coleman’s would be 1 in 19 million. In short, Coleman was a killer. Everyone who said otherwise was dead wrong.|
