Warren Lee Hill had an IQ of 70, and could not prove intellectual disability in court under Georgia’s very strict standard.[su_center_ad]

    terribly sad but then when the judge and jury and georgia in general have an IQ average of 70 it’s a tough call. Brutality and ignorance go hand in hand.

    This story was on my local news site the other day and some guy actually defended it by using the book The Bell Curve. He stated (out loud and in public) “that black IQ’s are different than white IQ’s and that an 8o was an a good IQ for one of them.”

    I often wonder the longer someone is allowed to verbalize these ideas, how long before it becomes acceptable speech?

    As for Mr Hill, there is no doubt that he committed the crime and at times I have to wonder if there aren’t particular heinous crimes that warrant the death penalty, but in the end I think the fact that we continue to execute people says much more about us than the criminals.
