"Should McVeigh get a stay?"


Oh, I suppose he should S.T........not that he deserves it. Let the system play out a little more. After all, nearly all of these death penalty cases get further reviews (and should). If it wasn't the FBI paperwork safu it would have been something else anyway.

I do happen to believe that there should have been no requirement on behalf of the F.B.I. to furnish the Mcveigh defense team with every single page of their investigation in the first place. I'm not sure how this mutual disclosure works at the Federal level but the defense may have had some mandate to furnish the results of their investigation to the prosecution. If so, I'll bet they committed plenty of omissions as well. If these omissions existed I'll bet the news media would not have reported on them.

Those brilliant men that conceived of the Constitution must be rolling over in their graves.
