Lethal Injection Drugs Causing More Chaos

The lethal drugs used in many states are hard to obtain, and in some cases, illegal. This has caused most executions to be post-poned. In Oklahoma, Richard Glossip's execution was stopped again, for the third time.

“Until we have complete confidence in the system, we will delay any further executions,” Gov. Mary Fallin said about this.

Other states have done the same out of concern for the legality and propper procedure for the drugs. In less than two months, Missouri is scheduled to execute Ernest Lee Johnson by lethal injection.

Gov. Nixon Commutes Death Sentence for Kimber Edwards

Great news--all of our efforts, calls, petitions have paid off.  An amazing group of attorneys, advocates, caring individuals, and voices came out to call attention to Kimber's case.  We thank you all and are so grateful to know that Kimber Edwards can breathe deeply and enjoy hope for the future.  We thank the Governor for his wisdom and thank you all for your determination.  



"Arbitrary, capricious, and discriminatory" is what lawyers are calling the application of the death penalty in the U.S.

In three recent death penalty cases, the actual killers have gotten time in prison while the alleged masterminds behind the murders have gotten the death penalty. The cases of Kelly Gissendaner, Richard Glossip, and Kimber Edwards highlight the need to re-evaluate a system that is supposed to punish the worst of the worst, but is often "disturbingly disproportionate." In Missouri, Kimber Edwards is scheduled to die on October 6 and will be the first man to be put to death for a contract killing in Missouri, despite recent evidence that proves his innocence. 

Innocent Man Scheduled to Die Today

Despite the only witness against Richard Glossip, Justin Sneed, having bragged to inmates about having framed an innocent man, Glossip is scheduled to die today in Oklahoma at 3PM unless the Supreme Court steps in. This controversial ruling has brought into question the credibility of the witness, as well as the falibility of the justice system. Also of concern are the lethal drugs used to carry out the death penalty. Glossip had tried to stop his execution earlier this year by having the Supreme Court decide whether or not the lethal cocktail was constitutional or not.
