Straw man. His guilt is not at issue.Letís review the FACTS of this violent THUG rather than the nonsensical hyperbole of this thread:
The crime was committed over 23 years ago.
He was convicted and showed no remorse.
He appealed and the appeals court upheld the conviction.
The case went to the Supreme Court and his conviction and the issue of lethal injection was upheld.
Now what is begging the question is why so many Liberals and perhaps SOME independents are so desperate to take the side of a convicted killer who shows no remorse?
This is another of those Alice and Wonderland moments where up is down, down is up, wrong is right and right is wrong; the killer is the innocent victim and the Judge is the evil bad person.
There are no FACTS to support the lame efforts of a minority of weirdoís in this nation who want to release and protect violent THUG criminals who prey on the innocents and law abiding in this country. Itís more of the same asinine logic of the war protestors who blame America for the actions of terrorists, thugs and murderers.
This is another case of how despicable Attorneys who represent thugs try to PLAY the system and then when they lose their cases, impugn the people protecting our citizens from these violent THUGS; nothing more, nothing less.
Michael Wayne Richard was dressed for his execution in Texas' death house on Sept. 25 when the U.S. Supreme Court announced at 7:30 p.m. that it wouldn't postpone the convicted killer's lethal injection.
In hours before last execution, a frenzied legal fight - USATODAY.com
Michael Wayne Richard, 48, was executed by lethal injection on 25 September 2007 in Huntsville, Texas for the rape, robbery, and murder of a woman in her home.
On the afternoon of 18 August 1986, Richard, then 26, was in front of the Hockley home of Marguerite Dixon, 53. Richard approached Dixon's son, Albert, and asked if the van parked in the driveway was for sale. When Albert Dixon told him the van belonged to his brother who was out of town, Richard left.
Richard admitted being involved in Dixon's death and helped police track down the murder weapon. His fingerprints were also found on the sliding-glass door to the victim's home. He claimed that the gun discharged accidentally.
Richard had previous served parts of two prison sentences for home burglary. In March 1978, he was sent to prison on a 6-year sentence. He was paroled in May 1981. In January 1985, he was returned to prison on a 5-year sentence. He was paroled in June 1986, about two months before Dixon's murder.
A jury convicted Richard of capital murder in September 1987 and sentenced him to death. In September 1992, the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals overturned his conviction because the jury was not instructed to consider his history as an abused child as a possible mitigating factor when determining his punishment. In a new trial in June 1995, a jury again convicted Richard of capital murder and sentenced him to death. The TCCA affirmed this conviction and sentence in June 1997. All of his subsequent appeals in state and federal court were denied.
