Bush: Former Army Cook's Crimes Warrant Execution
President Bush could have commuted the death sentence of Ronald A. Gray, a former Army cook convicted of multiple rapes and murders. But Bush decided Monday that Gray's crimes were so repugnant that execution was the only just punishment. Bush's decision marked the first time in 51 years that a president has affirmed a death sentence for a member of the US military.

He's been convicted of 4 murders and 8 rapes. How is that outside the norm?

Isn't it the US's policy in general to only execute those who have committed murder, or treason, or things of that nature? Maybe that's the reason this is newsworthy...he's been sentenced to death for reasons outside the norm.

haha that would been pretty great... sadly I knew the person who called and they go "Talk to me, huh?" Now that I think of it, a bit dirty considering I was 17. haha

Related to the topic at hand, I agree with Bush's decision. And Jude, again, you are on fire! :notworthy: I understand the interest since he was in the Army, but it does not mean he gets a free pass or any other special interests in the least.

LOL hunter! Did the person respond, "Dirrrty"?
Lady-Boleyn Lady-Boleyn 8 years
haha Jude! You would not believe the times I have done that picking up the phone. When I was in high school and answered the phone, someone was talking to me and instead of saying "how can I help you?" I said "how can I talk to you?" since I heard the word talk. Moral of the story: I rock. haha

I always answer the phone at home, as if i was at work and people laugh at me, my husband wont let me answer the phone anymore....when you do something 10 hours a day!

:ROTFL: UD! The lady on the other line started talking in Hebrew, and I really didn't have the brain function to deal with it (I mean, if I can't remember what to say when I pick up the phone...), so I did pretty much the same thing you just described, except that voicemail picked up instead of another person.

:rotfl: I answered the phone saying a competitor's name of business. I've never worked there before, and have no idea why I did it. I hung up very quickly, and had someone else answer the phone when they called back.

The phone just rang; I picked it up, put it next to my face, and suddenly realized I'd completely forgotten what to say when answering the phone. Time for some caffeine.

s'okay Jude, i am still at work and its 5:30, i think I just typed a letter and put my name as the recipient.
Jude-C Jude-C 8 years
I think you're right, CaterpillarGirl. I'm sort of tired, so I think I'm reading things incorrectly at the moment.

I also agree with this decision, I think its an issue because of how rare it is?
Jude-C Jude-C 8 years
I agree wholeheartedly with Bush's decision here, but I don't understand why his death sentence should be more of an issue simply because he was a member of the U.S. military.
