Suggested Talking Points

1. Alabama has no clear and carefully documented execution protocol but plans on using a secret and untried protocol. The men will be guinea pigs!

2. Instead, Alabama ought to delay all executions to allow for a thorough study of its capital punishment process and consider the serious objections raised as to how it administers the death penalty.

TALKING POINTS FOR TOMMY D ARTHUR:

1) Protocol challenge pending in Federal Court
2) Lost/destroyed evidence.

 

Suggested Talking Points

 

1). Mr. Reeves has an IQ in the 60s and is intellectually disabled. Mr. Reeves was 18 years old at the time of the crime. A neuropsychologist determined that "he has significant deficits in multiple areas of adaptive functioning" and because those deficits appeared before the age of 18, it was concluded that Mr. Reeves is intellectually disabled. 

2). Due to early incompetent representation Mr. Reeves' developmental disability was not presented in a timely manner. 

3). Alabama is failing to reveal the source of its execution drugs and their expiration date.

4). Alabama still uses a method of execution with drugs considered by some States to be in violation of the Constitution and ethically, morally wrong.

5) Alabama ought to delay all executions to allow for a thorough study of its capital punishment process and consider the serious objections raised as to how it administers the death penalty.

6) The number of people entering and leaving the facility during executions could turn them into COVID-19 spreader events that would put other prisoners' lives in danger.
