Update: Just another murder

The State of Texas murdered Frank Garcia last night. There was no fanfare. There was no media frenzy. There was no one broadcasting from outside the Walls Unit. It was just another execution. Another murder. The twelfth one this year.

Frank Garcia is dead. He killed his wife and a San Antonio police officer. They're still dead.

Frank Garcia was no media darling. His case didn't lend itself to crusades.

In the end, Frank Garcia will be forgotten. He'll become just another number. Just another nameless man killed by the State of Texas. Just another inmate strapped down to a gurney with an IV in his arm.

Does that make anyone feel any better?
