Following up on Monday’s post regarding the scheduled executions of two mentally disabled men, Warren Hill and Yokamon Hearn:
Georgia decided yesterday to postpone the execution of Hill until next Monday, “as it makes changes to its lethal-injection protocol… switching to a single drug, pentobarbital, from a combination of three drugs.” Yokamon Hearn is still scheduled to be executed in Texas today.
Please go if you can. These men, mentally disabled or not, are entirely guilty of their crimes — and adding to the death toll will help no one, least of all their victims. We need to find a way to not choose death when the option to choose life yet remains.
