The state of Texas executed a cop killer yesterday. George Rivas, 41, of El Paso, shuffled off this mortal coil with the help of a lethal injection for gunning down a 29-year old police officer during the robbery of a sporting goods store on Christmas Eve 11 years ago. He was one of a group of seven prison escapees who had gotten out of a Texas lockup two weeks previously. The whole mob was caught in Colorado about four weeks after the cop’s murder.
Strange how Texas and Florida can manage to rid their society of dangerous criminals and we can’t manage it.
