Attorney General of Utah “tweets” prisoner’s execution

Tells the world, “May God grant him the mercy he denied his victims”


 

Twitter users are questioning the etiquette behind Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff’s latest Tweet, reports tech-blog Mashable.com. “I just gave the go ahead to Corrections Director to proceed with Gardner’s execution,” tweeted Shurtleff. “May God grant him the mercy he denied his victims,” he added. Ronnie Lee Gardner was the first to die by firing squad in the U.S. in 14 years when he was shot this morning. One user of the social media site named diptychal called it “… the dumbest most disgusting use of Twitter ever.”

  1. I see the AG of Utah is an extreme right wing nut.

    One of these days we are going to realize an awful lot of Americans are very extreme right wing nuts and then quit calling them our best friends or good neighbours, because an awful lot of them, ain't.

  2. Sounds like a pretty good use of Twitter to me. Best I've ever heard, actually.

    Regarding the prayer he tweeted: amen. May he be granted mercy.
