More investigation needed

McALESTER — Editor:

(Regrding Jeffrey Matthews execution) With these affidavits one would think this needs more investigation before it proceeds. Were these affidavits available before to previous jury trials??? Probably not as one juror has submitted his as well. Let’s see: an ex-employee from the district attorney’s office, and ex-deputy, as well a juror! What could possibly be their motive for submitting their affidavits after all these years and 2 jury trials? His alleged accomplice said he didn’t do it — but he doesn’t say who did? He can’t very well do that because he would then be labeled a snitch and spend the rest of his time in protective custody.

Based on the information in your article, they need to take a closer look before they proceed with this one.

I’m formerly from the Mcalester area, and read the paper daily.

 

Regards,

Jeff Bennett

Brashear, Texas

    There are plans to cut expenses of government, yet cuts aren’t always justified and if they affect people directly, there is a lot of unhappiness. Plans to close the Social Security office in Hugo is a recent example.

    The President is in Israel saying “we’re a democracy.” I like to think I’m pretty “up” on current events but I guess I missed this major change in our government.

    Editor:
    You don’t need that!  We have been hearing a lot of that lately, mostly by the left, but also by the right. They are mostly talking about  semi-automatic rifles and large-capacity magazines this time. Of course, we don’t need them
