In under a dozen years, Texas has killed more than twice as many people in its lethal injection chamber as any other state in the USA has put to death in the three and a half decades since the US Supreme Court allowed executions to resume under new capital laws. Texas is now set to carry out its 250th execution under Governor Perry. Texas should recognize that the only way to eradicate the discrimination, error, unfairness and cruelty associated with the death penalty is to abolish it.
