Killing the innocent, Texas-style



I've been reading of Leonard Mlodonov's book, "Subliminal," regarding how terrible our memories are about eyewitness events. No surprise that an innocent man was put to death in Texas. Quoting from the article, "the worst cases are those that... likely happen every day in which no one cares that much about the defendant or the victim." No one cares -- especially politically-minded prosecutors, and death-crazed Supreme Court justices -- who have no incentive to doubt themeselves to look for the real bad guys.
