"Preventing a Miscarriage of Justice"


Quoting from the New York Times Editorial:

"As troubling as Mr. Banks's case is, it is hardly isolated. A study of more than 4,000 capital cases found that nearly 70 percent of them contained serious errors. The Supreme Court should set aside Mr. Banks's execution to prevent a miscarriage of justice - and to send a message about the standard that prosecutors and courts must meet before they put someone to death."

With reason founded in my own experience, I Agree.

    "Countdown to Execution No. 300", By BOB HERBERT

    "Mr. Banks, a man with no prior criminal record, is most likely innocent of the charge that put him on death row. Fearing a tragic miscarriage of justice, three former federal judges (including William Sessions, a former director of the F.B.I.) have urged the U.S. Supreme Court to block Wednesday's execution."

    It cannot be that the necessary work is left undone in matters of Life and Death. That 'way' don't cut-it.
