My reply to this is who cares? Did he care when he shot that girl and buried her alive?

I'm just sorry the next POS who raped and killed an innocent 11 month old baby couldn't be executed right after him.
This is a HORRIFIC post.

The DP is horrific and ILLEGAL under international law.

You guys are only surpassed by China and Afghanistan in your hurry to execute individuals.

Recent revelations state that ONE IN 25 persons executed in the US are "likely to be innocent".

I wasn't at this guys trial, maybe he did it maybe he didnt - but the attitude shown above is EXACTLY why these nasty violent crimes occur.

No one cares.

No "humanity" at all.

What would Jesus do, oh Great White Christian Megapower?

10 Infamous Cases of Wrongful Execution - Criminal Justice Degrees Guide

I certainly have no sympathy for the man and his botched execution but capital punishment should be reserved for overwhelming eye witness testimony and confessions.. if there is only circumstantial evidence and a sole questionable eye witness then life in prison should be the sentence.

A death sentence should be very rare. .reserved for cases like a Jack Ruby (Caught on TV killing Oswald) and cases where the criminal confesses.. leaving no doubt about the guilt.

I'm familiar with the 10 cases in that link, which includes the De Luna case I was referring. The other 9 are not examples of the wrong persons proven to be innocent, especially Cantu.

Now, in regards to Johnny Garrett, that looks to be possibly the second case where the wrong man was executed. However, I will say that when you look at the facts of the case, I see this as kind of a lottery and an EXTREMELY rare instance that will never be repeated.

Not enough to convince me to end the death sentence.

Additionally, now with modern DNA testing and data bases, the Garrett case is practically guaranteed to never happen again.

Wrong.

Trying to correlate that 1 in 25 capital cases are overturned to 1 in 25 innocent persons executed shows an ignorant understanding of statistics.

How much garbage can you stuff into one post? Bogus "innocence projects" designed to fabricate evidence, combined with race baiting. Your Demunist Commiecrats at work!

I only support the death penalty in extreme cases, but if someone has committed a crime so horrible that they're to be executed for it, than I don't really care if that person suffers.

I feel that lethal injection is a stupid method of execution. These individuals should face the firing squad while at risk teens are forced to watch.

Here is s list of the number of people who were on death row and found to be not guilty via DNA and other modern measures: It is ridiculous to think if this many people were found innocent in recent years alone, that many innocent people weren't put to death prior to DNA.

EXONERATIONS BY STATE
[SIZE=3]As of March 12, 2014 there have been 144 exonerations in 26 different States.[/SIZE]

"Lethal injection" is a euphemism for poisoning, a word government dare not use lest it call to mind the death of Socrates.

The ritual of poisoning criminals is actually less humane than the former English practice of hanging a man so quickly he barely had time to think about it; from when the hangman and warders entered the condemned person's cell to his dropping took less than a minute, indeed, often well under.

Spoken like a true liberal who "feels" for everyone, lets all sing kumbaya, shall we? OH, BUT WAIT, YOU FORGET TO MENTION............THE VICTIM IN YOUR RANTING POST OF MEANINGLESS DRIBBLE.

Yes, the victim that could have been your daughter, or even you. Shall we go over again what he did to her for you?

In most places about this earth, this animal would have been beaten to death in the streets.
