Regarding Sushant Singh RajputEdit

I would like you to edit the wikipedia page of Sushant Singh Rajput regarding the section where the reason behind death is written to be death by hanging , whereas the actual reason is still unknown. Police is still investigating the matter and public believes that it is not a suicide, rather its a murder. So kindly edit the same. Bhavya Paliwal (talk) 09:22, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

@Bhavya Paliwal: This appears to be debatable. I suggest you raise the issue on Talk:Sushant Singh Rajput. Modest Genius talk 10:20, 8 July 2020 (UTC)

Individual state powers interest general American public, studies suggestEdit

Obviously, dead is dead. Though crediting/blaming the US for executions carried out by Texas (and other states) is wrong on levels one needn't be a scholar to appreciate. We've probably both seen the scene in movies and TV where a death row inmate waits for or mentions a last-minute phone call from the governor. Whether it comes or not, the point is clear: The governor has the power, over the warden, over the executioner and certainly over the inmate.

But in a federal case, there is no governor. And for the first time ever, the part of the governor was played by a WWE Superstar, rather than a "legit" Republican president. It's pretty weird, having Trump give the big thumbs down to a neo-Nazi, of all people! But not blurbworthy, no complaints on your vote. Just saying your last sentence about who's been executing those dirty dozens you recall might warrant a second thought. If not, cheers! InedibleHulk (talk) 17:34, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

I don't understand most of that, or know what film you're referring to, but I think you're agreeing with my oppose !vote at ITN/C? If so, OK then. Modest Genius talk 10:30, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
There's the United States, then there are the U.S. states. All are their own little worlds, with their own courts, constitutions and citizens. When you claim "the U.S." is executing dozens of prisoners each year, you're saying (probably unintentionally) that the people in charge of federal justice are the common killers, which they aren't. It's usually Texas, but always an entirely distinct sovereign state from "the States" (by any name), in a mundane civic way and an arcane legal one. Didn't have one show in mind, just the whole tired device. TVTropes calls it "The Last-Minute Reprieve", has plenty of non-governor examples, too, if kings are more your thing. Google if curious, but it's not as important as remembering that America is 51 places (not counting the complicated parts), and most have nothing to do with this case, or the president or Hollywood.
