Please follow this link to the column at the Dallas News on Judge Sharon Keller. Judge Keller remains the Presiding Judge of the Texas Criminal Court of Appeals. She was found to have violated the Code of Judicial Ethics when among other things she refused to hold open the Clerk of Courts office to receive a protentially meritorious motion and brief based on a US Supreme Court decision from that morning. The death row inmate was executed by Texas that evening.
Our love affair with the Angel of Death, in Texas, Mississipi, Ohio, Tennessee, Georgia and elsewhere continues, but I am encouraged. Maybe we are beginning to see just how capricious and arbitrary and perverse this judgment is in operation and outcome. Visualize the death of the Angel of Death.
