BTQ takes on the Coleman case

Milbarge has this lengthy post about the Coleman case, which includes the obligatory reference to this blog as the SW Virginia embassy to the legal blogosphere.

M. says:

"If the new DNA tests clear Coleman, I expect abolitionists to say 'I told you so' and supporters to say 'It doesn't change our overall need for capital punishment.' If the tests inculpate Coleman, I expect supporters to say 'I told you so' and abolitionists to say 'It doesn't change the systemic problems with capital punishment.'"

I'd say that's right.

UPDATE: Also, this post on the Coleman case from generated a couple dozen comments, some of them surprisingly insipid for readers.
