The Jaker

Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

The Death Penalty in action
Texas may be about to execute an innocent man, Pablo Melendez. Here's the quick summary. For the full details (including the fact that one of the survivors of the attack described the perpetrator as having a mustache, beard, and tattoo - while the convicted was too young to grow a mustache and beard and had no tattoo) go here and fill out the form to appeal to Gov. Perry for clemency.

The victim's mother even believes they have the wrong guy. And as with most capital convictions, the defendant's attorney was woefully unqualified and unfunded, compared to an experienced and well-financed state prosecutor.

Melendez is scheduled to be executed in 20 days.
