Death delayed is a travesty

It’s been almost 20 years since a Cobb county judge sentenced Andrew De Young to die for murdering his parents and 14-year-old sister.  It took “only” ten years for the Navy SEALS to find and kill Osama Bin Laden.  But because of the justice system in the USA, De Young’s lawyers keep filing appeals and lawsuits to keep him alive.  The latest action is a lawsuit that claims that any changes in Georgia’s lethal injection procedure should be opened to public scrutiny.  The Georgia Corrections Department is considering a switch from sodium thiopental to pentobarbital.    Sodium thiopental is no longer made in the USA.   That this has gone on this long is a travesty of justice.  There are earlier postings on this blog dating back to the time of the murders and the trial.  I invite you to read them.
