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.

Libyan Muslims Throw Alleged Gay Men Off Rooftop

With the poisonous gas attack in Syria, the world is seeing once again the lack of respect for life of the innocent.

But just days before the gas attack another horrific incident occurred overseas.

A video of Muslim men throwing accused homosexuals from a rooftop in Libya was posted to Twitter by a local journalist on Sunday. 

The killing was done as a form of punishment for disobeying the Sharia law, a strict interpretation of an Islamic set of principles, according to Tarek Fatah.

The authenticity of the video was unclear, but in the 45-second clip, apparent Muslims can be seen chanting "Allah-U-Akbar" as they throw four purportedly gay people off a rooftop. 

The incident allegedly took place in Libya, and the date, as well as the victims' gender, were unknown. 

Towards the end of the clip, a bystander walked toward the unmoving bodies. 

However, it remained unclear if he was a part of the act since he stood on the sidewalk as the bodies dropped one by one.

Under Sharia law, homosexuality "is a vile form of fornication, punishable by death," according to TheReligionofPeace.com.
