Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 7.5.17

Thanks to the Alabama Supreme Court's extended celebration of the Fourth of July there is no news to report, not of the negative kind anyway.  Things were quiet at Holman as well although the awards for the championship competitions were handed out yesterday.

Weekly Report from the Board Meeting at Holman Prison 6.28.17

We quote from an article in the Atlantic “The U.S. Supreme Court’s latest term, which ended this week as the justices began their summer recess, saw death-penalty opponents achieve some notable victories even as the Court moved further away from abolishing capital punishment.” And although we welcome the “notable victories” the reality that the Court moved further away from abolishing the death penalty is the bottom line.

Friends,

We are very sad to announce that the State of Alabama took the life of Robert Melson tonight at Holman Prison. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family members, many friends on the Row and his valiant attorneys who were able to get a stay from the 11th.The stay was lifted by the U.S. Supreme Court at Alabama’s request, a state that knows little about justice and prides itself in its bloody history.
