As we recently reported, the state of Alabama was set to carry out a highly contraversial execution. Nathaniel Woods, who is believed by many to have been innocent of the 2004 fatal shootings of three police officers, was put to death just days ago. However, this has not gone without backlash.
According to another individual, who was present the night the shooting occured, Woods had actually began to flee when the shooting erupted. He further had stated that Woods was completely unarmed that night. While this other individual had taken credit for being the shooter, this had no affect on the choice to continue with the execution.
Immediately resulting from this contraversial decision, the Facebook page of Kay Ivey has seen an endless birage of hate and anger. Comments calling the Governor a “racist,” demands for her removal, and even requests that she simply die demonstrate the rage of the people. While executions do happen, it is obvious that the Governor made a very poor choice in this situation, especially the possibility that Woods may had actually been innocent.
