The “pro-life” Supreme Court says it is OK TO EXECUTE someone who might be INNOCENT

May 30, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on May 23, 2022, hurts death row defendants whose lawyers were not doing their jobs at an effective level of professional quality. Many people have been sentenced to death after their lawyers failed to raise important issues, failed to introduce crucial evidence, failed to effectively argue against police who bullied innocent suspects into confessing, etc., etc. Here is an article about this stupid, cruel decision by the Republican-dominated Supreme Court:  https://www.thedailybeast.com/the-supreme-court-just-said-in-in-shinn-v-ramirez-that-evidence-of-innocence-is-not-enough The Quaker-based American Friends Service Committee (AFSC, www.afsc.org) repeated its long-standing call to ABOLISH THE DEATH PENALTY once and for all: https://www.afsc.org/blogs/news-and-commentary/its-time-to-stop-federal-executions-and-repeal-death-penalty?ms=EMA22WR0528&emci=a6b4cd81-f9dc-ec11-b656-281878b8c32f&emdi=3630e9e1-81de-ec11-b656-281878b85110&ceid=882844 This is […]

Texas scheduled Melissa Lucio to be executed on April 27, 2022, but NO CRIME was committed!

April 9, 2022 GlenAnderson 0

People who care about social justice are alarmed that Texas has scheduled Melissa Lucio to be executed in April 2022, but NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED! Women are especially likely to be convicted of crimes against family members, even though they are innocent.  In the past year I’ve signed many petitions to free Melissa Lucio, who is INNOCENT.  The State of Texas made a horrible mistake in thinking she killed her daughter. On October 18, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court DECLINED to consider the case of Melissa Lucio, an innocent woman on Texas’ death row. The Cornell Center on the Death […]
