Selective Outrage From The Left

In 1980, three teenagers working in a Fresno market were murdered. They were killed by a "hit man" hired by a man already convicted of a previous murder for hire who was now trying to eliminate witnesses. That man was Clarence Ray Allen and, after 24 years on death row, he was finally executed. What are the obvious observations here? Well, if he had been executed for the first "special circumstance" murder, the three teens would still be alive today. Also, I don't recall any media coverage of any "vigils" leading up to this execution ala Tookie Williams, and I certainly don't recall seeing or hearing Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or Louis Farrakhan speaking out against it. Nor do I recall that fool and former M*A*S*H star carrying on either. I guess capital punishment is only wrong when the condemned is black. [Note: Allen was Native American as far as I know]
