White Supremacist Executed For Dragging Death Of Black Man


White Supremacist Executed In Texas For Dragging Death Of James Byrd

Troy Davis wasn’t the only Death Row inmate executed on Wednesday.

Lawrence Russell Brewer, a white supremacist gang member, was put to death for his involvement in the dragging death of a black man 13 years ago in Texas.

While Davis’ execution was detailed roughly four years, Brewer was executed in Texas by lethal injection at 6:21 p.m. local time (7:21 p.m. EST).

According to reports, Brewer and two other white men kidnapped 49-year-old James Byrd on June 7, 1998.

They chained Byrd by the ankles to the back of a pickup truck and dragged him three and a half miles down a country road near Jasper, Texas.

James Byrd died from decapitation after he hit a culvert.

Brewer was a former member of “Exalted Cyclops,” a racist prison gang affiliated with the Ku Klux Klan.

Brewer’s execution was the 11th this year in the state of Texas, by far the most active death-penalty state.

    Is it a coincidence that this Brothah Troy Davis & this krakkah were scheduled to be executed on the same day? They did it to not grant Davis clemency, cuz they weren’t gonna let a Black man live on the same day a dog-humpin’ cave dwellah is executed.
