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. He was screaming, “My babies are burning up!” His children—Karmon and Kameron, who were one-year-old twin girls, and two-year-old Amber—were trapped inside.

Iraq: Gay men beheaded, thrown off building top by ISIS

New shocking pictures have emerged of a man being thrown to his death from a high-rise building by ISIS for the ‘crime’ of being gay.

The blindfolded captive is seen held on the precipice of a high-rise building in Iraq.

A huge crowd, including many young children, watched. Some had stones in their hands to finish the job if necessary.

The victim is pushed off, falling 100ft on to the concrete below.

This murder comes after ISIS, also known as Da’esh and ISIL, released a propaganda video that delivered a clear, terrifying warning to what happens to gay people in countries under their control.

In the video, a series of punishments are shown. One man accused of being gay is thrown off a roof in front of a baying mob on the ground. Blindfolded, he is thrown head first onto a pile of rocks.

Writhing on the floor, he is finished off by being stoned to death by the mob.

Another man, also accused of being gay, is beheaded with a bloody sword. Another shot sees a body lying twisted on the ground. The decapitated head is on the body’s back. People watch and do nothing.

The video also shows a prisoner, arms stretched out, waiting to have his hand cut off for theft.

Dozens of LGBTI people have been killed by Islamic extremists in Iraq and Syria. Gay people, according to ISIS, are the ‘worst of creatures’.
