People Take To Social Media To Voice Opinions On Richard Glossip Execution

Posted: Updated:

After years of back and forth, trials, convictions, and appeals the day of execution for Richard Glossip arrived on Wednesday.

Glossip was convicted of being the mastermind behind the 1997 killing of motel owner Barry Van Treese. The man responsible for the murder, Justin Sneed, told police Glossip put him up to the crime.

Glossip has always maintained his innocence throughout the proceedings and even garnered national and international support from anti-death penalty advocates, celebrities and thousands of citizens. Even Pope Francis reached out to Gov. Mary Fallin and asked for commutation for Glossip.

The case has played out not only in the legal realm, but in the court of public opinion; with people on both sides fervently arguing their view on the matter.

Here are just some of those comments:
