Wow! Supreme Court has halted the execution of Duane Buck

15 September 2011 at 8:12:29 PM


Lawyers for Buck, who is black, appealed to the Supreme Court and said he had been unfairly sentenced because a psychologist testified that black men were more likely than other races to be repeat offenders after their release from prison

If it was more than 90 minutes AFTER his scheduled execution, is he still alive?

Time for Rick Perry, who refused to commute his sentence, to trot out "THIS IS MONSTROUS" or accuse the Supreme Court of treason or to say, again, that he thinks that Congress should be over the SCOTUS. PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT

P.S. Here's a little morbid humour from Gawker

Luckily, former Texas AG turned senator John Cornyn asked, eleven years ago but still, that Buck's and five other death penalty sentences be reviewed for racial bias, which gave the Supreme Court enough fodder to halt Buck's execution early this morning. Governor Rick Perry, the presidential candidate who loves nothing more than personally executing people with his six-shooter, has so far remained mum about the case, possibly because someone else was already executed in Texas this week, temporarily sating his all-consuming bloodlust.

Wow! Good. Rick Perry is an ass. It isn't that man isn't guilty, it's that race was used to determine his sentence. Apparently the SCOTUS agreed enough to stay the execution. That doesn't make Rick Perry look good, eh?

It certainly doesn't make the Texas system look good, but I will be surprise if the Supreme Court decision stays.  There is a different kind of "justice" in Texas.  I'm awaiting some action by Attorney General Abbott who always seems to come to the rescue of the prominent and politically disturbed, especially when they get slapped on the butt by the Feds.
