Things I don’t have a problem with

This is one of them…

A death-row inmate slit his own throat with a makeshift knife early Thursday, committing suicide about 15 hours before he was scheduled to be executed, a prison official said.

Michael Dewayne Johnson, 29, was on death row for the 1995 killing of a convenience store clerk near Waco.

Soon to be executed prisoners killing themselves is something I don’t have a problem with.

And, yes, I understand that there are questions about whether he killed the guy or not, but we’ve been passed the point of arguing that for a very long time.  The real moral of the story is not to get yourself involved in something that could easily lead you or the people you’re with to kill someone.  Particularly in Texas, of all places.

I sympathize with the victim, who was involved in helping, not hurting others and got shot and killed for his troubles.

Sympathy for the killers?  Not so much.
