Gov. Rick Perry Stands Strong for Death Penalty for Heinous Crimes; Cheered by Crowd at Presidential Debate – Video 9/7/11
Here is video from tonight’s GOP Presidential Debate of NBC’s Brian Williams asking Rick Perry about the Death Penalty – something anathema to the Left. and whether he had “trouble sleeping at night” because of it. When Williams asked Perry about the “234 Executions” in Texas on his watch, the crowd at the Reagan Library cheered, and Perry said he had no problem sleeping. Perry made it clear that if you commit murder in Texas, you can expect to face the ultimate penalty:
“No sir. I’ve never struggled with that at all . . . If you kill one of our children or police officers or another citizen in a crime you will face the ultimate justice in Texas.”
This was a strong moment for Perry.
