With the upcoming scheduled execution of James Clark on April 11, Governor Perry will officially equal former Governor Bush’s record of 152 executions during his term in office, and bypass it with the execution of Cathy Henderson on April 18…
This record will also be historic in that James Clark is mentally retarded. And as we all know the Supreme Court has stopped such executions, but Texas in it’s usual stubbornness continues to execute the mentally retarded and squabble over standards of MR.
This record is disgraceful, along with our many other disgraceful records: first in the nation in teen pregnancy and the number of people who go hungry, near the top in children without health insurance, high school graduation rates, and child poverty, www.texanscareforchildren.org.
