Execution Watch: June 12, 2013

Tonight the State of Texas seeks to murder:

ELROY CHESTER III, who pleaded guilty to shooting to death an off-duty firefighter in Port Arthur when he interrupted the burglary Chester was committing. Chester’s attorneys argued on appeal that he is ineligible for execution because he is mentally impaired, but a divided federal appeals court upheld the sentence. Chester's previous execution date of April 24, 2013, was delayed by the trial court in response to a motion he filed. Chester’s execution would be the 499th in Texas in the modern death-penalty era.

Barbaric, costly but part of the Bible Belt mentality. Very un-Christian-like. True Christians are not haughty,self-righteous, revenge-seeking souls.
