The supreme court obviously needs to get involved and make sure this **** doesn't happen.

    Witness testimony is horrible evidence to boot. My sister used to work for the county and had her undergrad in psychology. She later decided to change her career and become a lawyer after talking to numerous people who were wrongly put away based on faulty witness testimony.
    Something was done. They won't do anything until the Supreme Court comes to a decision.

    from ABC NEWS
    t 7:05 p.m., five minutes after his scheduled death, Davis' supporters erupted in cheers, hugs and tears outside the jail in Jackson, Ga., as supporters believed Davis had been saved from the death penalty. But Davis was granted only a temporary reprieve as the Supreme Court considers the decision.

    Rarely even that, as the state has little impetus to investigate whether they executed the wrong person.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I would say they have plenty of reason not to investigate such a disaster.

    It often does execute the wrong person, which is one of many reasons why there should be no death penalty.

    this is truly cruel and unusual punishment

    its like those Chuck Norris Missing in action films where some sadistic NVA officer plays Russian Roulette with some POW. they should exhaust all the appeals months in advance rather than strapping the guy down, pulling him up etc

    but I do have issues with the death penalty and this is one reason

    I actually doubt many innocent people get executed. when mistakes are made its usually the case of the lesser of two scumbags getting whacked. LIke the getaway driver in a murder robbery getting the needle rather than the gunman. Or a gang banger who didn't fire the fatal shot in a gangland gunfight but merely missed when someone died
