Arkansas Executions: One Down, One to Go



Breaking: Marcel Williams got lucky tonight when a judge postponed his execution a few minutes ago, as reported by the Los Angeles Times. His lawyer claimed that the Jones execution did not go well. Even those being put to death for heinous crimes have rights to go peacefully. Williams warrant for execution expires at midnight. If the judge does not reverse her order by then, Williams may escape death.


Arkansas has executed Jack Jones Jr. the first of two inmates scheduled to die on Monday night.

A flurry of legal challenges, court rulings and reversals has interfered with the state’s unprecedented plan to execute eight men by lethal injection in 11 days.

Of the four executions scheduled prior to today, three were ultimately stayed. One man, Ledell Lee, was killed, just four minutes before his death warrant was set to expire; it was the first execution Arkansas carried out in 12 years.

Marcel Williams is also scheduled to die on Monday night.

If both Jones and Williams are killed on Monday, it will be the first double execution carried out in the U.S. since 2000.

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson said after Jones was executed that the law was upheld.

“The victim’s family has waited patiently for justice during that time. The jury sentenced Jack Jones to death, and his sentence was upheld by judges and reviewed thoroughly in courts of appeal at each level.

“A governor never asks for this responsibility, but I accept it as part of the solemn pledge I made to uphold the law. Jack Jones expressed his willingness to proceed today, and we hope this will help bring closure to the Phillips family.”

Another inmate, Kenneth Williams, is set to be executed this Thursday. inmate Jason McGehee also had been scheduled to die that day, but a parole board has recommended his life be spared and a judge ruled that the state had to allow a 30-day period for public comment before making a final decision.

That pushes McGehee’s execution past the end of the month — which means, for now, it is effectively stayed. The state’s supply of one of the drugs used in its lethal injection protocol, midazolam, expires at the end of April, which is why officials set such a rapid schedule of executions.

The executions were briefly blocked by decisions in both state court and federal court. But then on Monday, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected concerns over the method and pace of the executions, and the Arkansas Supreme Court overturned objections to how the state acquired one its drugs.

The higher courts’ decisions paved the way for executions to move forward, unless an inmate receives an individual stay.

Lawyers for both Jack Jones and Marcel Williams have sought such stays, including through appeals based on the inmates’ poor health. The lawyers say the inmates’ current medical issues — and drugs used to treat them — might interfere with the lethal injection protocol and cause them to feel extreme pain.

Jacob Rosenberg, a reporter for the Arkansas Times, told NPR on Sunday that the men also have claims of intellectual disability.

“Marcel Williams has a very compelling case that’s been discussed where he had a pretty horrific childhood growing up of sexual abuse, and that wasn’t brought up at trial,” Rosenberg said. “The reason that matters is because with the imposition of the death penalty, there’s something called mitigating circumstances. And so those need to be brought up at trial because those mitigating circumstances, like mental health, could stop the death penalty’s imposition.”

Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson has said it’s his duty to carry out the men’s sentences and that the executions will bring closure to victims’ families.

DyRo Moved to Federal Death Row in Indiana

Baby faced killer Dylann Roof has a new home in Mike Pence’s home state.

Recall that his sentencing he had no desire to fight the death penalty.

Unlike the dishonorable thugs who drag out their stay on death row for 20 years, which we complain about here, DyRo will probably be executed relatively quickly. The feds will be anxious to make an example of a racist.

Post and Courier

Dylann Roof, the self-avowed white supremacist who killed nine black parishioners in a massacre at Charleston’s Emanuel AME Church, is now on federal death row.

Prison records show Roof was being housed at the United States Penitentiary in Terre Haute, Indiana as of Saturday morning. The facility is where federal death row inmates are housed and executed.

Roof was transferred Friday afternoon from the Al Cannon Detention Center in North Charleston, where he had been held since his arrest after the June 2015 church shooting.

The move came 11 days after the 23-year-old pleaded guilty to nine counts of murder in state court and received life sentences without parole, effectively wrapping up local court proceedings in his prosecution.

The U.S. Marshals Service took custody of the convicted killer from Eastover around 1:15 p.m. Friday, according to jail records and confirmation from Lt. Rita Avila Zelinsky of the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office.

A jury in December convicted Roof on 33 federal charges, including hate crimes, and sentenced him to death.

Roof is now the 63rd inmate awaiting execution on federal death row. The last federal execution was carried out in 2003.

Although we have given DyRo no support in the past, at this point in time, whites should think about softening their position. Not to support his criminal acts, but to support his mental health while being held in prison. A Bible, a candy bar, an encouraging note–I don’t know what would be best for him, but certainly blacks on death row receive all sorts of support from civil rights, anti-death penalty liberals.

Shouldn’t conservatives also support, within limits, a young, stupid white boy?

Arkansas begins 11-day ‘run’ of executions


The left is desperately trying to outlaw the death penalty in America, even though there are academic studies showing that it has a deterrent effect. Executions should be swift and highly publicized.

The deaths of convicts may be gruesome but how much more gruesome were the deaths of the victims.

Sky News

Ledell Lee was on death row for bludgeoning neighbour Debra Reese to death with a wrench her husband had given her for protection.

Arkansas has carried out its first execution since 2005 – the first of eight which the state had originally planned to carry out by lethal injection over a period of 11 days.

Ledell Lee was pronounced dead at 11.56pm local time on Thursday, four minutes before his death warrant was due to expire.

Last-minute appeals seeking to conduct DNA testing in an attempt to prove his innocence were rejected less than an hour before his death.

The execution process took two minutes, during which Lee lay covered with a sheet, with his arms extended and his head and hands covered with leather straps.

He made no final statement and is reported to have shown no apparent signs of suffering during the execution.

A spokesman for Arkansas governor Asa Hutchinson, who scheduled the multiple executions, said: “Justice was carried out.”

The 51-year-old was put on death row for the 1993 murder of his neighbour Debra Reese, who Lee struck 36 times with a wheel wrench her husband gave her for protection.

He was arrested less than half-an-hour after she was killed, spending money he had stolen from her. He always claimed his innocence.


Arkansas officials have been trying to push through the run of executions because the state’s supply of midazolam expires at the end of April and the chances of getting a substitute are slim.

However, last-minute court challenges have derailed three other executions scheduled for this week.

An earlier order halting the use of vercuronium bromide – one of the three drugs used in the state’s lethal injection process – was overturned by the court.

Drug company McKesson Medical Surgical Inc said the drug had been sold to the state for medical purposes, not capital punishment.

The makers of the other two drugs being used in the process – midazolam and potassium chloride – were blocked from intervening in the case.

Two more inmates are set to die on Monday, and one on 27 April. Another inmate scheduled for execution next week has received a stay.

Arkansas dropped plans to execute a second inmate, Stacey Johnson, on the same day. He will now be seeking more DNA tests in the hope of proving his innocence.

The death penalty was reinstated in America in 1976.

Muh holocaust. They’ve killed an innocent man because he’s a Nigger.

Outrage as Jew Murderer Who Raped, Burned Alive Mom and Two Teen Daughters Has Death Sentence Commuted

-Commuted_Steve_Hayes jew

petit family

Jew, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, atheist or anything else, Steve Hayes deserves the death penalty as much as any man alive. More, he deserves to be slowly tortured to death by the most diabolical means that men of justice can devise.

It won’t happen. He’ll live a long and happy life in prison.

As a self-converted Jew, he’s demanded and received special privileges in prison, which you can read about here.

This outrageous story shows what happens when liberals gain control of government.

Daily Mail

The Connecticut man who lost his wife and daughters in a brutal home invasion in 2007 said Wednesday it was ‘sad’ one of the killers had his death sentence revoked to comply with new state laws.

Dr. William Petit was tied up in the basement of his New Haven home during the July 23, 2007 attack and almost beaten to death. He could only listen as his wife was raped and murdered by Steven Hayes. Petit managed to flee to a neighbor’s home as his daughters perished in the fire Hayes lit.

petit burned alive

‘It is a very sad day when a prolonged trial and decision and sentencing by a jury that took 4.5 months to seat is overturned by a legislature that ignores the wishes of the people of CT,’ he said in a tweet on Wednesday.

He added: ‘The insult is compounded by a Supreme Court that rules on not one but 2 cases based on personal opinions and politics and not the law.’

Hayes was sentenced to death in 2010 after being convicted of murder, first-degree kidnapping, first-degree sexual assault and 13 other counts.

Co-defendant Joshua Komisarjevsky was also sentenced to death in 2011.

But in 2012 the Connecticut House of Representatives voted to repeal capital punishment, stopping it from being handed out in future cases.

Originally, the 11 people on death row – including Hayes and Komisarjevsky – were still to face execution.

But in August last year that was deemed to be ‘cruel and unusual punishment’ and their death sentences were commuted.

The full story of the monstrous crime is explained well in this Wikipedia entry.

Any judge who would let Steve Hayes and his accomplice live is a conscienceless liberal retard who deserves to be removed from the bench.

North Carolina Negro Brothers Pardoned in 1983 Rape and Murder

nenry mccollum leon brown brothers

I’m suspicious of these “innocent men wrongfully convicted” stories that are increasingly a feature in the news. The release of black males from prison has the effect of creating white guilt. As Professor Kevin MacDonald notes in a video I posted earlier tonight, the white race is the only race capable of feeling guilt. Our enemies use that against us.

Now look. We whites put two innocent blacks males on death row for over 30 years. We must repay our debt to blacks by kowtowing to their every whim. We must agree to die when they decide to rape and kill us–die with a smile on our faces and a thank you on our lips.

I ain’t buyin’ it.

Excerpt from Sky News

Two brothers, one of whom spent 30 years on death row, have been pardoned in the 1983 rape and killing of an 11-year-old girl.

Henry McCollum and his half brother Leon Brown were cleared by a judge in September after new DNA evidence pointed to another man in the murder of Sabrina Buie.

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory signed their pardons on Thursday, paving the way for both men to receive $750,000 (£488,000) in compensation from the state.

“This has been a comprehensive and thoughtful process during the past nine months,” Gov McCrory said in a news release.

Allegedly, DNA evidence cleared the two brothers, but DNA evidence relies on the honesty of those conducting the DNA tests. Liberals so want to free blacks from prison that nothing should be left to chance when it comes to DNA testing. Let several independent labs run blind tests concurrently or else the results must necessarily be suspect.

By the way, I’ve never heard of a white man being pardoned in this manner, only blacks. Black privilege? You decide.

And as to that $750,000 they’re going to collect, it’ll be gone in the twinkle of an eye. With nothing to show for it.

Update on Tina Waddell, the Woman Walker Beaten Beyond Recognition on the Silver Comet Trail in Georgia

Michael Ledford--this piece of sh*t was sentenced to death for the murder of a woman bicylist on the Silver Comet Trail in 2006; insofar as I can tell he's still breathing, eating three squares a day while on death row appealing his conviction

Recently, a number of liberals have discovered this website, dishing up criticism of me for daring to mention the race and/or ethnicity of criminals and good samaritans alike.

Well, I’m going to do it again.

White, white, white, white, white …

Because of my doctoral degree in economics, my mind is trained to observe detail. I think like an FBI profiler.

That’s why, although there is no indication of the race of the attacker of Tina Waddell, I believe him to be a white man. Most likely a loner with “issues” toward society, and toward women in particular. Someone like Michael Ledford.

It’s important to think like an FBI profiler as each of us goes about his business. Such thinking, involving race, can save your life or the lives of your loved ones.

I love being called a racist for having a realistic attitude toward race. In fact, I wear the word as a badge of honor.

But enough about me and about race. it’s Tina Waddell that’s important. Tonight, this article is the latest I could find on her condition and on developments in the case.

Tina Waddell--her husband reports that every bone in her face was broken; surgery will be required to assist in her recovery

Tina Waddell–her husband reports that every bone in her face was broken; surgery will be required to assist in her recovery

Atlanta Journal Constitution

Jessica Owens carried a large stick and her friend, Vickie Gravett, was armed with a knife as they walked the popular Silver Comet Trail Friday, just days after a 42-year-old woman was brutally beaten.

While law enforcement agencies in the counties through which the trail passes say there is virtually no crime on the Silver Comet, Owens and Gravett still feel unsafe, especially after seeing photographs of the beaten, swollen, unrecognizable face of Tina Waddell.

“We don’t want that (the attack on Waddell) to deter us. But we won’t walk alone,” said Gravett, who also was walking with her 13-year-old son, Mason.

“I feel more at ease knowing we have protection,” she said moments after passing the crime scene tape that still marks the spot where Waddell was attacked Tuesday.

“We have protection in case something else was to happen,” she said. “We have sticks. We have knives on us. We’re well prepared…. It’s still a little bit creepy. We’re just a little paranoid now that, that happened (and) the person who did that, attacked that lady is still here, is still on the loose.”

There was very little foot or bike traffic on the trail in the section of the Silver Comet in Paulding County where Waddell was dragged off and beaten. Around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, a casual bike rider came up on her as she pulled herself up an embankment that dropped down to Vernoy Aiken Road as it passed under the tail.

Initially, Waddell was expected to have surgery Friday but her sister-in-law said it was cancelled because of the extensive swelling. But she is improving and conscous enough to make decisions for her care, Kristen Waddell said.

Tina Waddell’s husband said the attacker broke every bone in his wife’s face and her jaw will have to be wired shut for four to six weeks. Kristen Waddell said her sister-in-law has asked for a milkshake.

By Friday, Waddell’s parents, son and best friend have arrived from Arkansas, where she lived until she married in 2011. And they are refusing to leave her bedside at a Marietta hospital, Kristen Waddell said.

Tina Waddell’s brother-in-law has opened an account at Sun Trust Bank to take donations for a reward; the account is Take Back the Trail for Tina. Her husband’s family and her friends have organized a two-mile walk for Saturday at 10 a.m. on the trail from Tara Drummond Park and past the spot were she was attacked.

Signs of the attack were hard to spot three days later. The only evidence is in the trees far off the trail where yellow crime scene tape still marks off the area.

Owens, Gravett and the teenage boy came up on two deputies surveying the area. The women asked about the case and the deputies assured them that investigators were making progress, following leads.

A spokesman for the Sheriff’s Office said there was no news to report, however.

Spokesman Cpl. Ashley Hensen said there is little, if any, crime on the trail. Most of the calls for help involve keys locked in cars.

But eight years ago, Jennifer Ewing, on her regular 50-mile ride on the trail. was knocked off her bike and dragged into some brush where she was raped and murdered. Her killer Michael Ledford, was convicted in 2009 and sentenced to die.

Memories of that have contributed to the fear some have today.

Cobb County, through which the trail also passes, said the only report of violence on the trail there involved some kids jumping on a middle-age man, who suffered minor injuries, five years ago.

There have been no reports of attacks in Polk County, where the 61.5 mile trail starts its trek south into Cobb and west through Paulding to the Alabama line where it connects with the 33-mile-long Chief Ladiga Trail.

The feel of the trail is of isolation but many places the trees and brush screen busy roads, businesses and subdivisions from walkers and bikers. The noise from passing cars reaches the trail in several locations.

Friday afternoon, there were few people using the trail though traffic usually picks up after regular work hours.

Except for the two women walking with the 13-year-old boy, all others using the trail Friday afternoon were men, most of them on bikes.

Dennis Deal, 63, came to the Tara Drummond Park where the trail passes for a walk early Friday afternoon said he feels “uneasy” but he still came.

“I wouldn’t feel comfortable with my wife out here,” he added. “I see people (deputies) patrolling it. I don’t know how often they patrol. I would ask my wife not to come out here by herself.”
