Talking Points for Robert Melson


1. Witnesses at the botched executions of Ronald B. Smith Jr. and Eddie Powell noted visible signs of distress, yet nothing has changed in the execution protocol. Expert testimonies from the medical field, as well as from the pharmaceutical maker of the drug state unequivocally that midazolam is not effective as an execution drug.

2. Alabama has no clear and carefully documented execution protocols.

3. Melson’s former attorneys missed critical filing deadlines in his case more than 13 years ago. This was due to Alabama’s post-conviction proceedings which do not guarantee post conviction representation to indigent defendants.
