The state that keeps on killing is planning on killing again...
ON THURSDAY NIGHT, TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
ANTHONY HAYNES.The 33-year-old, who has been locked up since he was 19, was one of two black men convicted in the 1998 slaying of a white off-duty Houston police officer. Also convicted in the killing was Michael Turner. On appeal Mr. Haynes asserted that prosecutors deliberately excluded African-Americans from the jury.
In 2009, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals granted Mr. Haynes' writ of habeas corpus and ordered him released or retried due as a result of prosecutors excluding African-Americans from the jury. His victory, however, was short-lived as the U.S. Supreme Court reversed that ruling in 2010.
