Hate to be a wet blanket but "Don't Mess with Texas" is an anti-litter campaign. But hey, if it works for violent crime...

As to the 6 years, we used to be almost as bad as California as far as length of time on death row, but we've caught up in the last decade. Still, a few have been sitting on DR over 10 yrs. We'll catch up someday.

"The U.S. Supreme Court has barred execution of the mentally retarded."

But permits the execution of the mentally undeveloped if they are innocent, blameless, helpless and in the womb. Any honest man will place those black-robed executioners among the worst mass murderers of all time, second only to the communists.

Ths problem with feeding him to wolves, though, is that the wolf population of the Mountain West had just been reintroduced in earnest. Last thing we need is for them to acquire a taste for human flesh...

The U.S. Supreme Court in November denied his request seeking a review of his case.

Gotta' give those guys (and gals) in the black dresses some credit.
Like a broken clock, they get it right a couple of times a day.

Dallas carjacker wins reprieve of execution

06:06 PM CST on Thursday, March 4, 2004

Associated Press

HUNTSVILLE, Texas – A condemned inmate described by a prosecutor as an "equal opportunity carjacker" was spared Thursday evening less than an hour before he could have been taken to the Texas death chamber for killing a Dallas-area man who was shot 10 times in the head.

Yokamon Hearn, 25, was facing lethal injection for the 1998 fatal shooting of Frank Meziere, a 23-year-old Plano stockbroker abducted at gunpoint from a self-service car wash in Dallas six years ago.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with defense attorneys who sought a delay in their late appeals and stopped the punishment, but the court also set an accelerated briefing schedule to ensure the appeals would not take months, said Lori Ordiway, an assistant district attorney in Dallas County.

The death warrant would have allowed the execution to be carried out after 6 p.m. although state officials normally wait until all appeals are resolved before moving ahead with the injection.

In the appeal before the New Orleans-based 5th Circuit, lawyers filed late appeals contending Hearn may be mentally retarded.

The U.S. Supreme Court has barred the execution of the mentally retarded.

Nobody's going to find Hearn to be "retarded." He's just bought himself a few months more.
