Texas: Summer Execution Countdown

Good grief!!! This looks like a crisis for Texas.

There are now
12 people, a full dozen, that have been given execution dates for this year.  And it is only June. We hope that all of them can get a stay, but the reality is that most will not.

Lawyers have told us that there are a number of men who have exhausted their appeals and dates could be set soon.  The US Supreme Court declined to hear Sarge Foster's appeal so he could get a date any time.

If you know of other dates, please let the Abolition Movement know at

Russell Brewer and Steve Woods are not on the TDCJ list yet but have been given dates. Randall Mays was just added.
