← Texas man faces execution after jurors consult Bible to decide fate

Sigh. Texas who since 1976 has performed 441 of the 1176 executions in the United states. 37% of the executions and 8% of the population. I'm not so sure the bible in the jury room made any difference, Texas just loves to execute people. The Texas Governor is being criticized right now for removing 3 members of a panel that were about to give a report on a possibly innocent man who was executed under his watch. Link
