African American and Hispanics more likely to be violent

Says Walter Quijano, Texas psychologist who testifies at the sentencing @ many trials of the accused. I guess everything is really bigger in Texas, racism not exempt

Will the Next Man Rick Perry Executes Die Because He's Black?


Harris County prosecutor Linda Geffin was working late last week when she took a break and saw a Facebook post from a Texas death row attorney whose client, Duane Buck, faced imminent execution. Geffin had been part of the team that helped send Buck to death row; it was the only capital case she’d ever worked on, and as she recalls, it “left a big impression on me.” More than a decade had passed since the case, so she decided to reread the court transcripts, including a hundred or so pages of testimony from state psychologist Walter Quijano. Then she came across this passage:

Q. You have determined that the sex factor, that a male is more violent than a female because that’s just the way it is, and that the race factor, black, increases the future dangerousness for various complicated reasons; is that correct?

A. Yes.

Geffin thought, “That’s pretty clearly inappropriate, not to mention morally and ethically wrong.” Indeed, Buck’s attorney was trying to save his life based on his unequal treatment on the basis of race. On September 9, Geffin wrote a letter to Governor Rick Perry and the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles calling for Buck’s execution to be halted. “No individual should be executed without being afforded a fair trial, untainted by considerations of race,” she wrote.

On Tuesday, September 13, the Board of Pardons and Paroles rejected Buck’s appeals for clemency. He is now scheduled to die on Thursday, September 15 unless Perry grants him a thirty-day reprieve. It will be the 236th execution overseen by Perry during his tenure as governor.

Buck was one of seven prisoners on Texas death row whose cases were addressed in 2000 by then—Texas Attorney General John Cornyn. Now a US Senator, Cornyn announced that he would not contest the appeals of Buck and six other prisoners—even though their guilt was not in doubt—because race had been used as a factor to determine their criminality. The same psychologist, Walter Quijano, had testified during the sentencing phase of all the trials, repeatedly saying that the fact that they were African-American or Hispanic increased the likelihood of them being dangerous in the future. In a capital punishment case, this tends to prompt jurors to choose a death sentence over life in prison. By acknowledging the testimony was “inappropriate,” Cornyn said his goal was “to assure the people of Texas that our criminal justice system is fairly administered.”

All but one of these men have since had their cases re-examined. For procedural reasons, Buck’s case fell through the cracks. Convicted of a 1995 double murder, by the time his appeal reached federal court, a new state attorney general refused to allow his death sentence to be reviewed.

Anyone with a basic familiarity with the tough-on-crime mentality that dominates Texas politics knows Cornyn’s actions in 2000—supported by then Gov. George W. Bush—were bold and unusual. The chorus of voices now calling for Perry to take action are also striking. Aside from Linda Geffin, the surviving victim of Buck’s attack, Phyllis Taylor, has been vocal in opposing his execution, saying it would only “add to her pain.” Taylor grew up in Houston in the same family as Buck and, despite not being genetically related, they call each other sister and brother. Days after he shot her, Buck called Taylor from jail to apologize, saying he could not believe what he had done and that he had been high on drugs. Taylor forgave him, and became on opponent of the death penalty. “If a person can watch another person die and have happiness in their heart, there is something wrong with that particular person,” she says.

On Tuesday Taylor visited Buck on death row, where they prayed together for the families of the people he killed and prayed that the governor would grant him a reprieve. “I feel that if you’re going to punish someone for what they did, you should at least give them a fair trial,” says Taylor. On that account, she and Perry should be on the same page. “When someone commits the most heinous of crimes against our citizens, they get a fair hearing, they go through an appellate process, they go up to the Supreme Court of the United States, if that’s required,” Perry said at the GOP debate on September 7. If he wants to disprove those who doubt him, he can act before 6 pm Thursday, and spare the life of a man who was sentenced to die based on the color of his skin.

    as a reprieve is unlikely, here is what is going on right now

    lethal-injection-execution-chamber-raleigh.jpg

    The execution team is either in a separate room or behind a curtain and cannot be seen by witnesses or the condemned. In some cases, the executioners may wear a hood to conceal their identity. At the warden's signal, the execution team will begin injecting lethal doses of two or three drugs into the IVs. Some states use multiple executioners, all of whom inject drugs into an IV tube -- but only one of the executioners is actually delivering the lethal injection. None of the executioners know who has delivered the lethal dose and who has injected drugs into a 🤬 bag.

    The drugs are administered, in this order:

    Anesthetic - Sodium thiopental, which has the trademark name Pentothal, puts the inmate into a deep sleep. This drug is a barbiturate that induces general anesthesia when administered intravenously. It can reach effective clinical concentrations in the brain within 30 seconds, according to an Amnesty International report. For surgical operations, patients are given a dose of 100 to 150 milligrams over a period of 10 to 15 seconds. For executions, as many as 5 grams (5,000 mg) of Pentothal may be administered. This in itself is a lethal dose. It's believed by some that after this anesthetic is delivered, the inmate doesn't feel anything.
    Saline solution flushes the intravenous line.
    Paralyzing agent - Pancuronium bromide, also known as Pavulon, is a muscle relaxant that is given in a dose that stops breathing by paralyzing the diaphragm and lungs. Conventionally, this drug takes effect in one to three minutes after being injected. In many states, this drug is given in doses of up to 100 milligrams, a much higher dose than is used in surgical operations -- usually 40 to 100 micrograms per one kilogram of body weight. Other chemicals that can be used as a paralyzing agent include tubocurarine chloride and succinylcholine chloride.
    Saline solution flushes the intravenous line.
    Toxic agent (not used by all states) - Potassium chloride is given at a lethal dose in order to interrupt the electrical signaling essential to heart functions. This induces cardiac arrest.
    Within a minute or two after the last drug is administered, a physician or medical technician declares the inmate dead. The amount of time between when the prisoner leaves the holding cell and when he or she is declared dead may be just 30 minutes. Death usually occurs anywhere from five to 18 minutes after the execution order is given. After the execution, the body is placed in a body bag and taken to medical examiner, who may perform an autopsy. It is then either claimed by the inmate's family or interred by the state.

    Exactly. White people have been very Satanic in their behavior for 🤬 knows how long. No one comes close to the stealing and murderous mayhem Whites have done throughout the world. Okay, Asians come a little close, but are nowhere near as greedy.

    Geographic determinism. Europe and Asia had more usable resources than Africa did during periods of imperial expansion, so you people lost the big one. The white man invented democracy, the concept of human rights, international aid to starving populations, and global communication.

    Black people have an innate tendency toward violence more than any other group. This is why fighting in hockey is permissible, but not in the NBA. People would die.
