Green executed

As I feared, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the stay of execution issued by the U.S. District Court. Then the U.S. Supreme Court refused to overturn the Fifth Circuit.

Green was executed earlier this evening. His last words:

"There was a lot of people that got me to this point and I can't thank them all," he said, speaking in a barely audible voice. "But thank you for your love and support. They have allowed me to do a lot more than I could have on my own. ... I have overcame a lot. I am not angry but I am disappointed that I was denied justice. But I am happy that I was afforded you all as family and friends," he said looking at five friends.

"I love you all. Please just keep the struggle oing. ... I am just sorry and I am not as strong as I thought I was going to be. But I guess it only hurts for a little while. You are all my family. Please keep my memory alive."

Dominique, we will keep the struggle going. And we will keep your memory alive. This I promise you.

NO, Dominique, we won't forget and we WON'T STOP fighting executions in Texas and everywhere else.

So much for Bush's state and its "ethics."

Dominique, we will not forget. I post this in your memory, for all the victims of the Texas Killing Machine (namely your cousin, and Obie Weathers, and Jeffrey Dougherty RIP and Odell Barnes Jr. RIP) and on behalf of Gianfranco et al. who still love you.
