A few hours before Jeffery Wood was to be executed U.S. District Judge Orlando Garica stayed the Texas execution saying it was "an insane system".
Judge Garcia was not even speaking of the insane Texas accomplice law – also known as law of parities – but rather that the State of Texas refused Wood a lawyer or medical examination to prove he was mentally incompetent. The insanity being that a mentally incompetent inmate must be competent enough to act as his own appellate lawyer, write legal briefs and know how to submit such requests and briefs through the criminal beauracry. Catch 22. Well, as this is a game played by Texas to get their kicks dealing out more executions let’s double that and call it Catch 44. Accomplice in 1996 slaying gets execution delay
The quick recap.
Jeffery Wood was sentenced to death in the 1996 murder robbery of convenience story clerk Kriss Keeran who was shot by Daniel Reneau while Woods waited in the car (Reneau was executed in 2002 for the murder). The death penalty for Woods came because of an 1879 law called The Texas Law of Parties which makes accomplices in crimes just as guilty as the perpetrator of the crime. There is some precedent and logic in that, but none for a sentence of death for the man who did not do it. The Death Penalty is supposed to require extraordinary circumstances. In this case the only thing extraordinary is how hard the state of Texas tries to out Iran, Iran.
On Tuesday a unanimous 7 to 0 decision by the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles rejected a clemency request for the Thursday execution of Jeffery Wood. The board also voted 7-0 to not recommend Gov. Rick Perry commute Wood’s death sentence. Governor Perry of course had no intention of doing such an unChristian thing as both the board and the Governor are good TEXAS Christians in which forgiveness, mercy and such are all just a big pile of crap.
In defense of the board, the Governor and all Texas prosecutors and judges who consistently deal out as many executions as they can get away with, please take note that in every election cycle those seeking public office in Texas will fall all over themselves as to who has executed and will execute the most people. It is what the people of Texas most want in government, strapping unarmed people down on gurneys and killing them. Well, there is that other popular issue of that intense burning desire to carry guns into schools, churches, bars and the workplace. Together they make Texas what it is.
Texas is ahead of the rest of America in shootings, murders, killings, executions, fag beatings, and using paddles, canes, switches, belts, sticks and fists to keep our children in line. All while claiming to be the most Christian state in America. It is more than obvious that somewhere along the way Satan took control of Christianity in this state where he now runs the show. The only thing Christian about Texas is… Gosh, I can’t come up with even one thing. Wait… Hmmm… Oh yeah…
Texas Protestant Christians, led by the most vocal Christians in the State, read Dan Patrick, are at the very forefront of the jackbooted gestapo currently breaking into homes and workplaces, taking mothers from children and children from fathers, deporting and jailing entire families and creating a culture of fear for millions of Hispanics here in Texas not experienced since Texas was paying bounties on Mexican hides in the 1840s. Executions, Guns, Corporal Punishment and Fear - the 4 Horseman of Christianity.
