GREETINGS FROM THE EDITOR'S DESK

   Autumn is almost upon us and it has been an eventful summer. The State set an execution date for Tommy Arthut but, thankfully, it was stayed by the Alabama Supreme court when another man confessed to the crime. Alabama Attorney General Troy King is still fighting to execute Tommy but he has grudgingly admitted that Tommy may, once and for all, escape the executioner. Let us hope that his prediction comes true.

CUP HALF EMPTY, CUP HALF FULL?
We all know the old saying that for the optimist the cup is half full and for the pessimist it is half empty. When it comes to death penalty/moratorium work in Alabama the realist would have to say that it is neither and if that would seem to be an impossibility please bear with me while I explain the dangers in either perspective.

Alabama 2005 Poll Data

Dec
31

We thank the Capital Survey Research Center for so graciously responding to our request for a death penalty survey in Alabama and we thank all who contributed to this survey. It confirms that a solid majority of the people of Alabama believe that the time has come for a moratorium on executions while an independent study is conducted into the fairness of the application of the death penalty. It also confirms that most Alabamians do believe in justice and that candidates running for election can embrace it and win.

Broken Justice

Oct
01

"Of all the actions carried out by the state, none warrants more cautious implementation and stringent review than the imposition of the death penalty. Yet in Alabama,this most solemn responsibility remains fraught with inconsistencies and inequities. The structure of the state's criminal justice system and the power given to its trial and appellate judges compromise and limit the ability of capital defendants to get a fair trial and appropriate sentencing."
