In Texas tonight, the state is planning to kill a schizophrenic man, Scott Panetti. http://www.cnn.com/2014/12/02/opinion/powers-texas-execution/
Unusually, the state parole board has taken the step of recommending his sentence be commuted to life in prison, which means Rick Perry can stop this if he wants. There is a petition to stop this madness, but… if we’re relying on a petition I think we already lost.
Update as of 11:27AM: The Fifth Circuit Court has temporarily stopped the execution.
