SCOTUS on Alabama's Death Penalty Case
    


 If Alabama gets any more black eyes this year we're going to go blind.
    


 First it was the immigration law prompting international coverage showing the state the state as heartless.
    


Now it's eight of the nine U.S. Supreme Court justices suggesting they will overturn lower courts in an Alabama Death Penalty case.
    


Are we so bloodthirsty as to stick by a technicality in order to get an inmate into the chair (or gurney)?

From Gary Drinkard, member of Witness to Innocence, while on Alabama's death row member of Project Hope to Abolish the Death Penalty, since his release member of our Advisory Board:


Our justice system has a name ----SATAN----and it is stealing souls daily leaving blood on most Americans' hands, even the ones that don't support capital punishment. It breeds hate into loving families, it destroys the innocent lives of children on both sides of the issue, the victims as well as the families of the perpetrator,,,,,,We must stop this insane monster!!!!!!!!!!

Attorney Jack Carney to Governor Bentley on behalf of Christopher T. Johnson

Honorable Governor Robert Bentley
State Capitol N 104
11 S. Union St. # 600
Montgomery, AL 36130-2751



 Re: Mr.  Christopher T. Johnson



Dear Governor Bentley, 


I am writing to ask you to commute the death sentence of Christopher Johnson, who is scheduled for execution on October 20, 2011.  You have a tremendous opportunity to offer unsolicited mercy, as it is evident that Mr. Johnson will not be requesting clemency.

Even though Christopher T. Johnson has asked the Court to impose the death penalty it is still reprehensible that the State of Alabama participates in state killing.



There is no correlation between the use of the death penalty and the lessening of homicides. It can only exist because of a culture that supports killing for revenge.



The death penalty is not imposed in most of the nations in the world.

HUNTSVILLE, Alabama _ Should a condemned inmate be put to death even if his lawyers failed to meet a filing deadline for an appeal?


That's something the U.S. Supreme Court will decide in the case of misdirected paperwork for Alabama death row inmate Cory Maples.
