No Justice After 5

Timshel (thou mayest)
John Steinbeck (East Of Eden)

This week in Texas, an all-Republican review panel of three judges dismissed charges against Judge Sharon Keller who shut the door on an appeal against a death sentence.

In September 2007, Keller told attorneys scrambling to file a last-minute appeal for Michael Wayne Richard: “We close at 5”. She closed the court and Richard was executed that night for the rape and murder of a nurse.

What does that say about the integrity of the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals? What does it say about the three judges on the review panel who upheld Keller’s appeal against the public reprimand issued by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct? Don’t expect justice in Texas after 5 o’clock.

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
