Justice denied?

It seems the entire blogosphere is united in support of Cory Maye, a man sitting on death row for killing a police officer who kicked in his door in the middle of the night. Unfortunately it was the wrong house and there is much debate as to whether the police ever announced their identities.

Righties and lefties alike think that this is a travesty of justice. I agree.

One person who's remained conspicuously silent, however, is Jonah Goldberg, who argued during the Tookie Williams saga that the wheels of justice ought to spin faster. I'm sure that Jonah--as an intellectually stalwart (self-declared) arbiter of law, propriety and scandalous behavior in the corrections system--thinks that it's just dreadful that Maye's still alive at all.

Right. He shouldn't even be in jail. Our justice system at work in the deep south. Shame on all of us.
