For the past 14 years, the State of Texas has been intending to kill Anthony Cardell Haynes for the fatal shooting of an off-duty police officer in May 1998. Anthony Haynes was aged 19 at the time of the crime. The state has set a time and a date for his execution – 6pm on 18 October 2012. Amnesty International urges the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles and the Governor to grant clemency to Anthony Haynes and to support a moratorium on executions as a step towards abolition in their state.
