Did Kay Ivey just trash her political career?

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.

Nathaniel Woods set to be executed

In 2004 the lives of three families were forever changed. Three Alabama officers were gunned down, killed, by who the state would later identify as Nathaniel Woods. For many, however, there are questions regarding his innocence.

Activists on Facebook took to the page of Governor, Kay Ivey, with the hastag, #FreeNate. While this has been going on for sometime, it has recently gained momentum. Much of the momentum stems from his execution date, which is March 5, 2020 at 5:00 pm. As per protocol, defense attorneys have contacted the Govenor in attempt to stop this from taking place. However, the office of Kay Ivey has outright ignored these requests.

In the case regarding the shooting, another individual had taken accountability as being the gunman. Regardless of this, it is evident that the state will proceed with the execution. The issue we see in this derives from the other individual who took accountability. Because of this, it opens the door to plausible doubt. With plausible doubt, the state should, if Woods were to have a legitimate fair and impartial, review the new evidence.

While activists continue to fight for the life of Woods, the clock continues to tick, potentially sealing the doors to justice. While it is very possible that he is the shooter, the concept that he isn’t, should at least be entertained. In any competent justice system, reviewing potential evidence, especially regarding a man who will die in mere hours, would be mamdated. However, Governor Ivey seems more determined to execute, regardless of the secondary confession.
