Meet Sammy Flippen

Sammy Flippen is scheduled to be executed by the state of North Carolina on Aug. 18. This should never have been a death penalty case. A group of Sammy's friends has launched a blog to publicize his case. Here's the intro:

Hello, my name is Jill Wilkes and welcome to my site about Samuel Flippen. Sammy is a close and dear friend of mine. I have known Sammy since we were kids because we went to the same high school and church for many years together. I can remember us sitting and talking together on church youth outings and I remember what a joyful, funny person he was in high school. Everybody loved Sammy!

Yes, that was a long time ago, but Sammy is still that same person. I know because I have been visiting him in prison for the last 10 years. I am hosting this blog because I want to share with people what an amazing person it takes to not let 12 years of prison change him into a cold and bitter person. He is still a peaceful, funny, NORMAL guy. He IS NOT a danger to society and he DOES NOT have a violent personality which he has demonstrated by years of good behavior in prison. SAMMY DOES NOT DESERVE TO BE PUT TO DEATH!!!

Dear Jill,

The fact that Samuel Flippen took you to the prom and is in your estimation a nice guy does not obviate the fact that he is a cowardly scumbag killer who deserved to be executed a long time ago.

Let's look at the facts. Because she was crying he beat his two year old stepdaughter so severely he tore her liver and split her pancreas. She suffered trauma to her head,abdomen back, chest and extremities. Then Mr. Good Citizen lies and say she fell from a highchair. Had the highchair been on top of the Empire State Building his story might have been plausible. Unfortunately for him it wasn't, and medical personnel quickly determined she was the victim of homocidal rage; the type of rage Flippen exhibited when he punched a hole in the wall arguing with his wife.

He was found guilty by a jury of his peers and sentenced to death by not one, but two separate juries!

Instead of trying to save Sammy you should be thinking of Britnie who never got to go to her prom, graduate high school, go to college, get married, have children, and care for grandchildren.

The piece of trash who killed Britnie has already lived eighteen times longer than she did. It's too bad we don't allow drawing and quartering in this country. Lethal injection is far too good for Samuel Flippen.
