Edward Stengel

The authorities are still torturing Rommel Broom. Not only can they not guarantee that a 2nd attempt to execute him by lethal injection will avoid the same pitfalls of the 1st attempt, which clearly constituted cruel and unusual punishment, but the mere fact that they still plan on carrying out this execution by lethal injection is tantamount to psychological torture. The Ohio Supreme court should commute his sentence to life without parole if the governor won't do it.

The StandDown Texas Project

  • The StandDown Texas Project was organized in 2000 to advocate a moratorium on executions and a state-sponsored review of Texas' application of the death penalty. To stand down is to go off duty temporarily, especially to review safety procedures.
