No, sorry, I think something more effective and less depraved could have been used for PR rather than this. Also the possible repercussions from exposure are astronomical. It's too risky. Someone, someday, would squeal.

I take great issue now with the use of Mr. Johnson's death in this manner. Why the hell would you jump to conclusions that you have now stated with absolutely no evidence? And furthermore, the immediate time after Mr. Johnson's death proves, at least to me, that you have been fomenting this theory in your own mind even before the actual execution took place...that's a bit of a credibility issue, now isn't it?
I stand by asking you to tone down your title. And I stand by saying that your statements today are unfounded.
It's fine to conjecture when there is some iota of reason to do so, but conjecture based solely on bias is meaningless and valueless.
I wish I was a Mod cause I'd trash this thread!
