New thread, same set of lies pumped by the media to divide us.

The truth ... .Martinez murdered his girlfriend by stabbing her 18;times with scissors, murdered her 15 year old daughter with a box cutter, and pausing to rape her (for the fifth time ) while she bled to death. These facts are not in dispute. What the Supreme Court ruling says is. That this monster ( who has already exhausted his appeals in the state Courts) doesn't get an opportunity to be heard in Federal Court whining that his lawyer didn't do a good enough job presenting his mitigating circumstances. What the ruling says is that a State Supreme Court verdict is respected, and that the federal Court of Appeals will only intervene when there is clear and compelling new evidence of innocence, or an indication that a gross miscarriage of justice. In this case, there wasn't.

Exactly Speaksoftly. To paraphrase Maureen Dowd in her article about the SCOTUS leak a week or so ago, "We have 5 political operatives masquerading as impartial jurists." And then there's Clarence Thomas......
