With a decent legal system we wouldn't need an appeals process.

With the current legal system? I bet at least 50% of the inmates shouldn't have been in jail.

There was a recent execution in Texas of an inmate who claimed Texas was using prisoners as slaves.

He also claimed he didn't commit murder by cutting a guy's throat from ear to ear. You see, his partner stabbed the guy 30 times. A few of those stabs were fatal injuries.

It is important to note that the executed prisoner who claimed he was innocent of murder actually held the victim up while the 30 stabs were administered by the real murderer.

Sometimes expediting government action is understandable.

Uh, that's a state prison in Huntsville, TX, not a federal penitentiary.

"with China, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia and the USA topping the list "

Nice to see we're in the top 5 with other countries that hold human rights in such high regard.

Is this based on evidence or just a survey you took of prisoners?

Does the US execute political prisoners? No.

It is in a rarefied league though. The countries with the world's 1st, 2nd and 3rd largest economies all have the death penalty.

They're on death row for a reason.

In Texas, sometimes that reason is their defense attorney fell asleep in court...

Well that is a reason.

Just seeing those rooms creeps me out more than most anything.

I waffle about the death penalty but "here's a picture of a state run murder room" really says a lot about the process and the country that supports it.

Well, you could always issue axe handles to the victim's family & friends, go waaaay out in the middle of an 800 acre field, and give the murderer a one minute head start.
