From around the blogosphere
Just a quick wrap-up from around the blogosphere:
- Anywhere But Here looks at the latest developments in the Chinese death penalty, including use of mobile execution facilities and organ harvesting.
- TCASK posts on the recent editorial by Lorry Post in the Philadelphia Inquirer that eloquently reflects upon the murder of Lorry & June Post's daughter and the abolition of the death penalty in New Jersey.
- Stand Down has been focusing intensely on the story of Steven Staley. Texas is looking at forcibly medicating Staley to make him sane enough to execute. [Steve Hall's work on Stand Down, is top rate, his posts on Staley are just the tip of the iceberg over there.]
- Concurring opinions looks at jury overrides in Alabama, as well as the interplay between the lack of a more systematic indigent defense system & the death penalty [posts here & here].
The site contains, chiefly, the thoughts and analysis of Karl Keys. It is designed to be a first draft of history & a first draft review of case law, not the last. The goal is to get timely, accurate and germane information to those involved or interested in capital litigation. In the balance between speed and accuracy, speed sometimes wins. The law may have changed, we may have misread and misunderstood something ten years ago and still be clinging to a misperception. It is not intended to be a comprehensive review of the law. This web site is only updated on a semi-regular (whenever there is nothing good on TV or pending court deadline). Any information or links contained on this website should not be viewed as the furnishing of legal advice or as to any claim of specialization rather is given for informational puproses only and does not constitute the formation of an attorney-client relationship.
