My son, who is now 26, went to a nice elementary school on a quiet tree lined street in Atlanta. Two years BEFORE he ever started there, a young woman named Julie Love had the misfortune to run out of gas nearby and start walking. She was kidnapped, raped, and shot in the head with a shotgun by one Emanuel Hammond. A year later, Hammond's erstwhile girlfriend, who had been there that night, turned him in. Seems she had gotten wind that he considered her a dangerous loose end. Hammond was convicted and sentenced to death in 1990 - 21 years ago.
Finally, tonight at 7, barring his defense attorneys finding a judge to listen to their contention that the drugs to be used aren't "safe", he will at last receive justice. He has had 23 years to make his peace with the Lord, something Julie Love never had.
