Bush Approves a Soldier’s Execution

President Bush has authorized the execution of Ronald A. Gray, a serial killer who was convicted of multiple charges of murder and rape. Gray committed the crimes while serving in the Army as a private and has been on the military’s death row for twenty years.

The last commander-in-chief to approve a military death sentence was President Eisenhower in 1957. With five more men awaiting execution at Fort Leavenworth, I think it needs to happen a little more often.
