    That isn't good enough. When an innocent man is executed ... those responsible for it, judges, prosecutors, ect ... need to be executed. This will make it VERY difficult to sentence another to die. It will also provide justice to the families of those wrongfully executed persons.
    an interesting claim

    now if a parole board frees a convict and that convict kills again should the parole board be executed? what if a judge lets a mope walk on a 'technicality" and the mope kills?

    If a prosecutor knows the defendant is innocent and obtains a death sentence you might have a point. Same with a judge. But you are engaging in fantasy thinking that this happens in the vast majority of the cases. Witnesses lie or witnesses are mistaken. Juries can be wrong.

    Texas, like most of the south, has a long history of corruption, bloodlust, and systematic abuse whenever it suited them. Don't believe me? Read the story of the civil rights marchers who were assulted in the south WHILE THE SOUTHERN AUTHORITIES WATCHED AND DID NOTHING (SOME PARTICIPATED). As a result, Texas, and most of the south cannot be trusted to fairly handle a trial.

    In Texas, EVERYTHING is a captiol crime execept the mistakes (wrongful convictions and wrongful execution) of the governing authorities. This is unacceptable and is ABSOLUTE cause to strip Texas of the right to conduct its own legal affairs.

    Vader as usual is up to his same old lies and deception. Until you can back up your claims enjoy living the world of fiction.

    No it's not. Mistakes happen... innocent people spend 27 years in prison or die on the table ... but that's a mistake and those responsible shouldn't be held accountable for the blood on their hands ... sure.... maybe you think this is ok ... but I do not.

    If an innocent man is executed, those responsible (the judge and the prosecutors) need to face the same punishment.. Then than punishment needs to be commuted to life in prison without parole or visitation from family members.

    Since you're from Texas, you get no opinion. You are barred from this conversation.

That won't get a huge chunk of either man's life back, but it will at least pay them compensation for their unjust convictions.

    In what is known as the Texas "for profit" plantation prison system, not all the system is bad. In fact, things are improving. The department which led the investigation that eventually freed both men was created by the Harris County Prosecutor's Office, right here in Houston. Yes, even in a place like Texas, things are changing, and for the better.

    People ask me why I am against the death penalty. To be honest, if it was perfect, then I would be the first to throw the switch. But it isn't, not in Texas, nor anywhere else in the US. These 2 inmates are lucky they were not convicted of a capital offense. At least they will be compensated. Someone wrongfully executed for a murder he did not commit is totally screwed, and compensation becomes a meaningless concept. THIS is why I oppose the death penalty, and always will, until it becomes 100 percent accurate, and no innocent people are put to death, which will happen................ Never. At least, not in Texas, also known as the nation of "Hang 'em High", for both, those who murder, and the occasional person who does not.

    Article is here.
    To be fair all states have the same problem, just watched a show about a inmate in FL, MD and ILL who also where wrongly convicted, and speaking for the one in FL. who was imprisoned for prescription drugs his doctor prescribed him...for 3 years and he was wheelchair bound. Texas like all states are not the exception.

    No, you're pseudo-reality does. Same with your photoshop skills. Perhaps you should try some online tutorials. Here is a link for you: http://www.tutorialized.com/tutorials/Photoshop/1

    EDIT: It's too bad they don't have intelligence tutorials

    I just do not think 2 million is enough compensation. At the very least, the prosecutors and judges in those cases need to be disbarred and their properties need to be sold so they can begin compensating their victims. Then the State of Texas needs to pay out 100 million to each of those victims.
