Execution Watch 2/29/2012
The Texas killing machine is back in business.
ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT, TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
GEORGE RIVAS. Described as the mastermind of a seven-man escape in 2000 from a state prison in South Texas, he was condemned in the shooting death of a police officer outside Dallas during a robbery by the group. Later one escapee committed suicide rather than be captured. The six survivors were sentenced to death. Executed in August 2008 was Michael Rodriguez, who had dropped his appeals. Donald Newbury was set to die on February 1 but received a stay of execution.
