Last week, five North Carolina death row inmates filed motions seeking to have their death sentences vacated under North Carolina’s new Racial Justice Act (RJA). These cases will put the new law, which allows death row inmates to use statistics to show that race played a role in their cases, to the test.

I’ll have to say I get the keyboard blues being constantly compelled to call out “Christians” who practice tribal religion in lieu of Jesus infused Christianity. We’ve got legions of ‘em here in the Lone Star State. They populate and dominate our Death Penalty industry.

The Supreme Court put off the execution of a Texas convicted person whose DNA evidence was never tested in the case against him. For once, it looks like the highest court in the land ruled in favor of an individual. Hank Skinner has been allowed to live for awhile, at least until all doubts are settled.

Wondering why conservatives are talking more about Willie Horton than Wayne Dumond in connection with Mike Huckabee? It’s because Dumond was pardoned when a bunch of right-wing lunatics, led by Huckabee’s buddy and fellow Baptist preacher Jay Cole, ranted without proof that Dumond didn’t actually commit the violent rape of a distant relative of Bill Clinton’s. But when Frankie Parker, a genuinely repentant convict, was looking for clemency, Huckabee instead moved to execute him sooner than scheduled. The difference? Parker had converted to Buddhism, not Southern Baptistry, in prison.

A Northwestern University professor and journalism students who spent three years investigating the case of a man convicted in the 1978 killing of a security guard believe they have evidence that shows prosecutors put the wrong man behind bars. But in the quest to prove his innocence, they may have to defend themselves, too.

It is pretty clear that Texas executed an innocent man. Now Gov. Perry is doing all he can to cover up his role in it.

By repealing the death penalty, Governor Richardson’s action this week eliminates the risk of New Mexico ever executing an innocent person. The question now is whether Governor Richardson will take the necessary steps to eliminate the causes that lead to wrongful convictions.
