Alabama Prison Guard Bennie Ashby Calls For The Killing Of Amanda Scott
When Bennie O. Ashby, an officer with the Alabama Department of Corrections (a prison guard), saw that Amanda Scott had requested legal equality between Christians and non-Christians, he got angry. Bennie Ashby logged onto Facebook and joined others who were inciting violence against Scott.
Specifically, Bennie Ashby called for the killing of Amanda Scott. “Shoot her for treason,” he wrote.
Ashby urged the killing of Amanda Scott simply because she is an atheist who asked for an end to legal discrimination against atheists in Mobile, Alabama.
Does the Alabama Department of Corrections believe that it is appropriate to employ people who speak out in public, urging others to commit felony crimes, as Bennie Ashby has done?
