All eyes in Tennessee !!!!!

our heart and thoughts with Edmund Zagorski !!!!!

Gov. Haslam is the sole person with the power to give clemency.
He didn’t !!!! he gave a 10 day reprieve to prepare an electric chair
that might not work.

did you try it, Haslam ??? with a cockroach ???
Scotus is a slaughterhouse !!!!!

after all, who is the murderer ??? some doubts ... yet ???
we are watching you !!!!!

this day will be an alive nightmare !!!!!
