110. Yes, it has ...
That's why I don't agree with the DP, most especially in cases like this. I just don't like to presume things that I was not a witness to. He very well could have been innocent and the thought is a really sad one. Nothing can be done about it now, but yes I really do hope they didn't execute an innocent man. None of us should ever have to wonder, I agree. Unfortunately it's all that's left now.
