Trial by Fire - Did Texas execute an innocent man?

The fire moved quickly through the house, a one-story wood-frame structure in a working-class neighborhood of Corsicana, in northeast Texas. Flames spread along the walls, bursting through doorways, blistering paint and tiles and furniture. Smoke pressed against the ceiling, then banked downward, seeping into each room and through crevices in the windows, staining the morning sky.
Buffie Barbee, who was eleven years old and lived two houses down, was playing in her back yard when she smelled the smoke. She ran inside and told her mother, Diane, and they hurried up the street; that’s when they saw the smoldering house and Cameron Todd Willingham standing on the front porch, wearing only a pair of jeans, his chest blackened with soot, his hair and eyelids singed.

Iraq: Crowd gathers to watch ISIS murder three gay men

Sick crowd gathered to watch ISIS murder three gay men
Sick crowd gathered to watch ISIS murder three gay men in Mosul, Iraq.
The group known as Islamic State (ISIS) has executed three more men for homosexuality in its Iraqi stronghold.

The terrorist group released shocking images this week showing a number of men being executed for being gay.

Blindfolded, the three victims were taken to the top of a 100ft building barefoot, hands tied and terrified.

A first man is dragged to the edge of the building, and dangled over the edge by his ankles. He is thrown off the building – and his body pelted with rocks by the crowd below.

Two further men, also thought to have been found guilty of sodomy, are also killed in the same manner.

Men, women and children are seen in the crowd below – with women who were once banned from attending executions now given special permission to leave their homes to attend.

The mob, with many of them armed with stones and rocks to finish off the victims, were prepared if any of them survived.

Posted online by Islamic State media, it was given the caption 'In the name of God the Merciful.'

The photos were believed to have been taken in the Iraqi city of Mosul, an ISIS stronghold.
