« Welcome to Texas: The Death Penalty State | Main | Ohio Governor Issues Two Reprieves Pending Lethal Injection Review »

Monday, 05 October 2009



It's a crying shame that Michael Toney died in a tragic accident because this means that the real “Lake Worth Bomber” is still loose and laughing up his sleeve at the corrupt Tarrant County District Attorney's Office (at the behest of their ATF handlers) that sent the wrong man to Death Row. Michael Toney was tried in a kangaroo court and convicted solely on the basis of coerced perjured testimony from his vengeful ex-wife and alcoholic business partner. The disgraced former Tarrant County Prosecutor Mike Parrish withheld 14 file boxes full of exculpatory evidence that would have categorically proven Mr. Toney's innocence. I hate to rain on Susan Blount's parade but justice has not been done and the person or persons unknown that murdered her family members is still out there somewhere.
