We are very sorry to have to report that Christopher Brooks was called to the Warden’s office and given a January 21st execution date. "This action is premature," wrote John Palombi in an email. Palombi is an assistant federal defender for the Middle District of Alabama who represents Brooks. "A final evidentiary hearing for the other five plaintiffs is scheduled for April 19, 2016, less than five months away.” The Board is in the process of crafting a petition which we will be releasing shortly.

This week our thoughts and prayers were with our friends and supporters of Francophones contre la peine de mort  in Paris and with friends of ACAT-France who for many years now join us in prayer on the nights of an execution here in Alabama. With every taking of life, whether it is an execution, a terrorist attack or a murder, it is always the human face that makes the horror real, “the one that breaks one’s heart.”

Today is Veterans Day and as we paused to remember all veterans we thought especially of the 300 Veterans who are on our country’s death rows, many suffering from PTSD.  Right here at Holman we have a veteran, suffering from PTSD whose unanimous recommendation for life by the jury was overridden by the judge.  Shameful!

As the midazolam hearing before Judge Watkins takes place this week it is good to keep the words of Attorney Palombi of the Federal Defenders in mind that “nothing will be decided this week.”
