Missouri executes a man while his appeals were pending
On Wednesday Missouri executed a man who still had appeals pending in the Federal Courts. They literally pulled him off the phone with his lawyers. His lawyers that were desperately trying to get in touch with the prosecutors, and the prosecutors couldn’t have been bothered to respond.
This isn’t the first time Missouri has done such a thing in recent months.
To my mind, this is an outstanding example of how little esteem the government and politicians of red states hold for ethics and justice. And how little they care for anything save their power.
