Executed today in 1922

On this day in 1922, two young Mexican-American men were hanged for murder. They’d decided to escape from jail, even though one only had two weeks left to go on his sentence, and brained one of the jailers on the way out the door.

The other day I was reminded of my much older entries, while reading about that awful situation with the contaminated water in Flint. In China in 2009, two men were executed for their role in a similar scandal involving contaminated baby milk.
