Of course it irks me that scores of black men killed via the death penalty have received half of the attention (if that) that Teresa Lewis received (wonder why?) from the media, it still goes without saying that the death penalty is wrong. Then too I still don't understand how someone can be pro-life and pro-death penalty at the same time.
Teresa Lewis died by lethal injection on Thursday night, the first woman in Virginia to be executed in nearly a century.
Lewis was prounounced dead at 9:13 p.m. as a small crowd of supporters stood outside in protest.
Though lawyers for Lewis waged a public campaign for the Gov. of Virginia to intervene, there was no 11th hour reprieve for the 41-year-old woman, who was sentenced to death for plotting the 2002 murders of her husband and stepson.
Lewis reportedly spent her last day meeting with her immediate family, a spiritual adviser, and supporters at the prison where she was executed.
For her last supper, she requested a meal of fried chicken breasts, peas with butter, a slice of German cake or a piece of apple pie, and a Dr. Pepper, according to SkyNews.
