The Wisdom of a Clerical Error

In Texas, a clerical error has shown more wisdom than have the leaders of that state. The 31st District Court, while steadfastly refusing to order testing of copious and probative DNA evidence, has ordered a one month delay in Hank Skinner's execution because of concern over the filing date of the original death warrant.

It is now time to RELEASE THE DNA evidence for testing by an independent agency. It will cost the State of Texas nothing and, if Hank Skinner is in fact guilty as Governor Perry and Lynn Switzer insist, there will be no further delay in Hank's execution.
