A lesson before dying (anthony KIRKLAND)

Hamilton County has condemned more men to death than any other county. 88 counties. Mostly poor. Mostly black. Is he human? Three words. One word answers only. Yes or No? They gave him a tie to make him look human-sane. But they despise him. Prosecutor Piepmeir called him a piece of shit, Deters called him an animal. So help me understand, is he human? Not pushing sympathy…trying to understand….troubled, deeply…. (Anthony Kirkland)
