Death penalty case shameful

I'm saddened and horrified that Dominique Green was put to death last night over the objection of the Houston police chief, a federal district judge, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and frankly anybody with a shred of conscience. Unfortunately, the latter category does not include Harris County District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal, the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles, Texas Governor Rick Perry, or the US Supreme Court. So Green was killed even though evidence from the scandal-ridden Houston crime lab had been called into question.

Yet another reason for Harris County residents to vote for Reginald McKamie next week.
