Many in the PiS government are proponents of capital punishment. I wonder what they think of this case.
In California, a 76 year old blind man (above) in a wheelchair, who was also almost deaf, has just been sentenced to death. Clarence Ray Allen’s crimes were pretty nasty, not to say bizarre.
The UK Guardian:
Clarence Ray Allen was sentenced to death in 1982 for ordering the murder of a witness to his murder of his son's 17-year-old girlfriend, who he had killed to stop her telling police about his robbery of a grocery store.
Allen was in jail for her murder when the subsequent killings took place. The hit-man killed the witness and two bystanders.
Er…right. Twenty three years later, late last year on Death Row, he got ill and his heart stopped. He was dead. But after a while they managed to revive him, just so they could go through with the execution as planned in his conviction.
