Omg best thing I’ve ever seen
I love how everything is hinted subtlety and then the last one is just
“They hung me by my arms, and upside down by my ankles. They beat and whipped my back and head with a rubber whip. They beat the soles of my feet with rubber tubes.

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) — Amnesty International USA Executive Director, Steven W. Hawkins issued a response after Washington Gov. Jay Inslee announced today that he is issuing a moratorium on the death penalty in his state, saying this places the governor to the “right side of history.”
Eighteen US states have abolished the death penalty. Today, the state of Washington took a step closer to joining the abolition community.
The Associated Press reports: ”[Governor] Inslee’s moratorium means that if a death penalty case comes to his desk, he will issue a reprieve, which isn’t a pardon and doesn’t commute the sentences of those condemned to death.”
The death penalty is the ultimate, irreversible denial of human rights. It is the premeditated and cold-blooded killing of a human being by the state.
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT: Stand with Amnesty International USA and thank Governor Inslee for taking this important step toward ending capital punishment in Washington.
Next stop: abolition - to permanently end the death penalty in Washington and around the country!
