Only Texas Has Killed More Prisoners This Year Than Ohio.

by Abolitionist Thursday, Aug. 01, 2013 at 6:29 AM

Only 12% of the world's countries still commit prisoner murder. Only 10% of US states or 5 states have murdered prisoners in 2013.

31 Jul 2013

Only FIVE of FIFTY states, only 10%, have murdered prisoners this year.

Texas remains first with 10 judicial murders. Next is Ohio with 5. Then Florida

with 3. Georgia and Virginia have 1 each. Ohio is the only Northern state

involved

in gubernatorial prosecutorial or judicial murder.

Mercy For Billy Slagle

Please ask Governor Kasich

to end Ohio's role as the only

executing northern state and

to cancel the execution

of Billy Slagle.

Governor John Kasich

Riffe Center, 30th Floor

88% of the world's countries have no government murder.

Rhode Island

deathpenaltyinfo.org

"The federal death penalty is controversial because it can be applied even in

the 18 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico that have elected not

to have capital punishment in their own law. Out of respect for the people of

Rhode Island--a non-death penalty state--the governor, Lincoln Chafee

(pictured), resisted turning over a defendant in 2011 to face the federal death

penalty. The defendant, Jason Pleau, agreed to plead guilty to a series of

charges including murder if he could be tried in state court. The federal

government resisted this offer, and it eventually prevailed in a court challenge

by the governor regarding custody of Pleau. Now the federal government has

announced that it will accept a plea in federal court in exchange for not

seeking a death sentence. Following the agreement, Gov. Chafee said, "The case

today has reached a conclusion, and [the victim's] family can begin the long

healing process. A life sentence is the appropriate punishment for this brutal

crime and respects Rhode Island's longstanding opposition to the death

penalty.""

Florida Again deathpenaltyinfo.org

"Florida has set an August 5 execution date for John Ferguson, a death row

inmate who has suffered from severe mental illness for more than four decades.

As far back as 1965, Ferguson was found to experience visual hallucinations. He

was sent to mental institutions and was diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenic,

delusional, and aggressive. In 1975, a mental health doctor described Ferguson

as "dangerous and cannot be released under any circumstances." Nevertheless, he

was released less than a year later. Ferguson believes he is the "Prince of God"

and is being executed so can save the world. Ferguson's attorneys recently filed

a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court, asserting that Florida courts have

applied the wrong standard for mental competency, ignoring the current

interpretation of this issue by the High Court, which requires that an inmate

have a rational understanding of why he is being executed. An earlier editorial

in the Tampa Bay Times opposing Ferguson's execution, agreed, "Florida is

embracing an interpretation of competency for execution so pinched that it would

virtually extinguish limits on executing the severely mentally ill. The state

says Ferguson is aware that he is being put to death and that he committed

murder, and is therefore competent to be executed."

Cold premeditated judicial

murder

is more criminal

than hot passionate

spur of the moment killing.

Judges, prosecutors, governors

disassociate themselves from

their atrocities with pens or

typed legal briefs as warmongers

don't see their bombing

victims on the ground.

When a state

murders a prisoner

it doubles

the murders.

Only love can

conquer hate.

Only light

can eliminate

darkness.
