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.

LONDON: A gruesome propaganda video showing ISIS terrorists throwing a man accused of being homosexual off the roof of a building has emerged on social media this week.

After the man plunges to his death, other men waiting at the bottom of the building run towards his body and pelt it with stones.

The footage titled 'The Voice of Virtue in Deterring Hell' includes a number of shocking scenes including a beheading, 'Daily Mirror' reports.

Another part of the video, released on April 6 on ISIS terrorist channels, shows a blindfolded man knelt on the floor waiting to be beheaded and another prisoner with his arm stretched out on a table as militants prepare to cut his hand off.

The video, believed to be shot in Syria, then cuts to ISIS fighters destroying and burning Christian relics and pulling a cross down off the top of a church as well as destroying bottles of alcohol.

The professionally shot, edited and produced video cuts between piles of rocks used for stoning and large crowds gathering for prayer.

The allegedly gay man is thrown from the roof of the building, before another blindfolded and kneeling man is brutally beheaded.

The video then shows the body of the man thrown to his death being stoned by a waiting crowd.

ISIS is known for its brutal treatment of homosexuals and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates that in January this year alone around 25 gay men were murdered by ISIS.
