Judicial Lynching In Texas.. Time For a Texorcism

by Abolition Saturday, Aug. 31, 2013 at 1:11 PM

Only 7 states murdered prisoners in 2013. Texas killed more than the other 6 combined.

Judicial Lynching In...
tcaa.jpg, image/jpeg, 400x283

The state of Texas murders more people annually

than the 6 other US executing states combined...

and of course more than the 88% of the world's

countries not involved in the ancient barbarism

of prisoner slaughter. None of the queue of people who have gone to the Texas guillotine is rich. Death Row is poverty row. Clemency in Texas is available only to the rich. Mercy is for sale. Racism is a factor. 3 to 4 times

more black prisoners on death row than white have been

sent to the death chamber.

Texas Court of Criminal Appeals

These are the five women and four men who keep the Texas death machine going.

These are the legal lynchers.

Presiding Judge Sharon Keller

Lawrence E. Meyer

Tom Price

Paul Womack

Cheryl Johnson

Michael E. Keasler

Barbara Parker Hervey

Elsa Alcala

Cathy Cochran

Texas Corporations

It is time for Texas based corporations such as

Clear Channel (C C Media) in which Mitt Romney has significant holdings,

Exxon, AT&T, Conoco Phillips, Marathon, Radio Shack,

J C Penney, Dell, Halliburton, Dean Foods, Southwest Airlines, Whole Foods Market

and Waste Management to use their financial

clout to end state murder. It is time for the Houston

Chronicle, Dallas Morning News and all Texas media as well.

Texas Coalition To Abolish The Death Penalty

John Grisham in his book The Confession which is

based on incidents from the lives of many executed

in Texas outlines the assembly line deaths of the innocent

and those who have committed crimes which occur

in Texas death chambers, the corruption of the

governors, senators, representatives, judges,

parole boards, sheriffs, police and prosecutors

who keep the Texas death industry going. Some judges

have closed their offices early to avoid appeals. Appeals

court judges like Roman emperors in the coliseum.

do not need to give reasons for their thumbs

down, their arrogant denial of compassion.

Juries composed entirely of white nominal Christians,

Southern Baptists, Pentecostals, Assembly of God etc.

have kept the death machine going. Meanwhile

presidents of countries and heads of international

religions making appeals to Governors Bush,

Perry and others have been ignored.

One of many innocents murdered in Texas

death chambers was Odell Barnes. Many

citizens of Canada, Mexico, Germany etc.

have not been allowed the right to contact

their consulates or embassies before being

illegally murdered. Other probable innocents murdered include Carlos DeLuna, Ruben Cantu, David Spence, Gary Graham, Claude Jones, Cameron Willingham and others.

Some Texas jails are over 120 degrees in

the summer Many prisoners have died in the heat.

Many prisoners have been subjected

to the torture of solitary confinement

year after year. The food and medical care are

often terrible. An atmosphere of punishment

rather than healing is endemic.

Groups like the American Bar Association report that the average execution costs

the state 2 million dollars. A prisoner who is not working in the

kitchen or library etc. costs the state an average 30 thousand dollars annually.

A prisoner has to live 66 years behind bars to equal the cost of 1 execution.

Whereas many murders are acted out in instantaneous hot passion (e.g. jealousy)

the judges of the Texas Criminal Court of Appeals commit cold premeditated murder

.... away from the crime scene, with their pens and computers as weapons.

Jesus prevented an execution in progress when he prevented the stoning of a woman.

There are many groups in Texas working for abolition of the death penalty.

Only 14% of US states are involved in government


As of August 30th 2013, the executing

states this year are Texas, Oklahoma, Florida,

Alabama, Georgia, Virginia and Ohio.

Ohio is the only northern state. All 7 executing

states have Republican governors, from Rick Perry of Texas and Rick Scott of Florida

to Bob McDonnell of Virginia and John Kasich of Ohio.

Other corrupting influences in the state:

. cow slaughter

. oil industry bribes, pollution and pricegouging

. racism

. military spending in great excess

May Texas and the world be healed.
