Some Bizarre Death Penalty Laws
Author: Broden & Mickelsen

Recently I had a Federal judge reject my attempts to keep a client on death row from being executed. I was appointed to represent the defendant after he had lost his trial; lost his appeal in state court; and lost his attempt to convince the trial judge to find his case constitutionally flawed pursuant to a "writ of habeas corpus." I was appointed, as Federal law provides, to represent him in relation to his final "appeals" to Federal court.

After I was appointed to represent him I asked the judge to let me have investigators and the funds to thoroughly review his case. Eventually the court agreed to let me do this. The evidence of guilt was overwhelming but the investigation revealed that the trial attorneys had failed to put on hardly any evidence in the phase of the trial in which the jury is supposed to hear all the evidence relevant to the question of whether he should live or die. The Supreme Cour…

Is Execution by Lethal Injection Painful?
Guest Author: Broden &Mickelsen

The Supreme Court heard arguments with respect to execution by lethal injection constitutes cruel and unusual punishment. Lethal injection has become the standard method of execution in the United States, Nevada being the only exception by relying on the electric chair.

Almost all jurisdictions which employ lethal injection rely on a "three drug cocktail." First a drug is administered that renders the condemned prisoner unconscious; second, a drug is administered that paralyzes the prisoner; and third, road salt is injected into the blood stream to stop the heart.

If the inmate is unconscious when the last drug is administered he or she will feel no pain. The concern arises form the fact that the first drug will wear off and the inmate will be conscious when the third drug is administered. In this eventuality the condemned man or woman will experience a horrible, excruciating death. Apparently the p…

Teresa Lewis is Executed; What Made Her Case So Interesting? - Law Blog - WSJ

The above is a Wall Street Journal article on Teresa Lewis now that she has been executed.

Keep this in mind.

They killed Teresa in YOUR name. As an American citizen, we allow the government to kill people as a form of punishment for killing people.

If your adverse to having your blessing insinuated with every legal murder committed in the country it is time to make your objections heard.

Do not stand around silently and allow murders to be carried out in your name.

Confessions of an American Black Widow

The Confessions of an American Black Widow
Gregg Olsen

Sharon Lynn Fuller Douglas Nelson Harrelson was a bad bitch.
She slinked her way through man after man after man with wild abandon. Some she married, some she slept with but only one did she love.

Marriage to Sharon was a way out. A way out of her claustrophobicly religious parents house. A way out of a dull marriage with a pastor and long days spent chatting with church ladies. A way out of debt. A way out of a hum drum life as a wife and mother.

Marriage was also a means to an end for Sharon. A means to new cars and gold jewlry and $100,000 mountain homes.

Seperate from all that was sex. Thats right ladies and gents- S.E.X.  Sex was a way out of the boredom and a way to prove to herself and everyone else that she was hot, that she was desirable, that she was needed and wanted. She was Sher.

Once Sher figured out how to use both to her advantage there simply was no stopping her.

I loved, loved loved this book. I'm a true …
