Default Texas to execute 9 over 31 days

TEXAS:

Texas scheduled to execute 9 murderers over 31 days -- If all are
carried
out, it would be one of state's most prolific spans


9 condemned killers are set to die in Texas' execution chamber over a
31-day period starting Tuesday.

Among the convicted murderers facing lethal injection is a San Antonio
man with one leg who earlier this year was spared from the death
chamber
by telling authorities he had knowledge of other slayings.

Texas, by far the nation's leader in capital punishment with 265 lethal
injections since executions resumed in 1982, put 17 prisoners to death
in
2001, one fewer than Oklahoma.

So far this year, 9 of the 22 executions in the United States have been
in Texas. Missouri is 2nd with 4.

If all 9 executions are carried out, it would be the most prolific
series
of punishment in Texas since 12 inmates were put to death over a 29-day
period in May and June 1997.

"Any date is serious," said Brian Davis, whose execution is set next
month for a Harris County slaying. "I don't want to die. But the way I
look at it is if you ask most people, they'd like to die in their
sleep.
I'm going to die like most people want to die. I know when, and I know
how."

Other than their fate and the fact that their appeals are running out,
the inmates share little in common. 2 are white, 4 black and 3
Hispanic.
3 had been to prison before. 7 were born in Texas, 1 in Nevada and 1 in
Paris, France. 2 were convicted in Smith County, the rest in different
counties.

They are among at least 15 prisoners with death dates pending in Texas.
4
more are scheduled for June and 2 more have August execution dates in
what could be a year that threatens the record 40 lethal injections
administered in Texas in 2000.

The timing of the punishments is coincidental. Dates are set by local
trial court judges.

The inmates facing death over the next 4 ½ weeks are:

-Rodolfo Hernandez, 52, on Tuesday. He was spared March 21 moments
before
he was to have been executed for his role in the 1985 robbery and fatal
shooting of an undocumented immigrant in Comal County. The reprieve
came
from Gov. Rick Perry after Mr. Hernandez told San Antonio police that
week that he had information about other killings in his native city.
Mr.
Hernandez lost a leg to diabetes, and prison officials have said a
recurring infection has prevented him from getting his wish: an
artificial leg so he can walk to the death chamber.

-Curtis Moore, 34, facing death Wednesday for the November 1995
abduction
and shooting deaths of 3 people in 2 killing sprees in Tarrant County.
In
one of the cases, a shooting victim who had been doused with gasoline
and
set afire survived to testify against his attacker.

-Mr. Davis, 33, set to die May 7 for the fatal stabbing of a mentally
retarded man he and his girlfriend picked up at a Houston bar in August
1991. The victim told Mr. Davis he would provide gas money for a trip
home. When he said later that he had no money, he was stabbed 11 times
and had a swastika carved into his abdomen.

-Reginald Reeves, 28, with a May 9 execution date for the September
1993
rape-strangulation of a 14-year-old girl who had run away from a group
home in Paris, Texas. Her body was found at a vacant house in
Clarksville, Texas. Mr. Reeves was 19 at the time.

-Henry Dunn, 27, with a May 14 death date for the abduction and fatal
shooting in November 1993 of a Tyler man. Mr. Dunn was 19 at the time
of
the slaying. Prosecutors said he tried to justify the murder because
the
victim was gay.

-Ronford Styron, 32, facing execution May 16 for the beating death of
his
11-month-old son in October 1993. The man from Dayton in Liberty County
told police he did not believe that the child was his offspring and
took
out his anger on the infant.

-Johnny Martinez, 29, with a May 22 execution date for the July 1993
fatal stabbing of a Corpus Christi convenience store clerk during a
robbery.

-Napoleon Beazley, 25, set to die May 28 for the 1994 shooting death of
a
Tyler businessman during a carjacking outside the victim's home. Mr.
Beazley was 17 when he killed 63-year-old John Luttig, father of a
federal appeals court judge in Virginia. Death penalty opponents
worldwide have rallied behind Mr. Beazley, contending it would be cruel
to execute him because he was a child when the crime occurred.

-Stanley Baker, 35, born in Paris, France, and facing injection May 30
for the September 1994 robbery and shooting death of a clerk at a
College
Station adult video store.

AND, PRAY TELL ME, HOW DO WE BRING BACK THE LIVES LOST IN THE MURDERS BY EXECUTING AND KILLING THESE MEN. HOW DO WE PREVENT THIS TYPE THING FROM HAPPENING AGAIN BY EXECUTING THESE MEN?

THIS IS NOT THE ANSWER TO CRIME. WE ARE ONLY DUPLICATING THE SAME CRIME WITH THE EXECUTIONS.

LETS LOOK AT OUR SOCIETY AND THE WAY WE HANDLE OUR ABUSED CHILDREN, OUR DRUG SITUATION AND THE WAY OUR JOBS ARE HERE IN THE US SO THAT WE CAN MAKE A LIVING WITHOUT COMMITTING A CRIME..

EXECUTION IS NOT THE ANSWER....
