Have set up this website. The woman who set it up seems to really know him well. She says that she knew him in high school and has continued to visit him over the 12 years that he's been in prison. From what I've seen, even if he committed this crime, Flippen is certainly not the worst of the worst offenders. Our system is broken and this is another example of that. If our state-wide Democratic leaders were really Progressives, issues like those found in Mr. Flippen's would have been solved long ago. Maybe if we had a governor who wasn't a former prosecutor we could get some justice for those on death row.
went to the website. I can't believe how sweet they both look. Its hard to imagine that the boy in the picture could hurt a child. I agree that our Governor supports whatever decisions are made by prosecutors in our state, whether right or wrong. Now, because of the Governor’s shortsightedness a man who still has something to add to the world might die in less than a month.
I'll make sure Sammy gets the compliment, too! I appreciate everyone's support!
P.S. He was and is as sweet as he looks!
a good man
My name is Amanda, and I know Sammy very well. He is a good man. I don't believe that he would ever hurt anyone. I feel blessed to know him, and I know I am a better person for having him in my life. I am praying for both Sammy, and his family and friends.
Doug Clark on the Death Penalty and Sammy Flippen
Doug Clark posted today's Greensboro News-Record column to his blog. Here are the first few paragraphs:
The whole thing is worth a read. Doug also links to a N-R article called "Woman accused of killing girl won't face death penalty:"
Looks like justice and revenge aren't one in the same.
