State of FloriDAH! vs. Death row realism

Mike Thomas Blog

“But now I am reconsidering. Noted DePaul law professor Andrea Lyon has joined the defense because it lacked an attorney who met the qualifications to defend a death penalty case.  Lyon is a very accomplished attorney who more than meets the qualifications.”

 “Just like Johnnie Cochran took over O.J.’s defense from Robert Shapiro.”

 
Death row realism  by Jeanne Woodford

Death row realism I did my job, but I don’t believe it was the right thing to have done. We should have condemned Massie to permanent imprisonment — that would have made the world safer, but on the night we executed him, when the question was asked,

“Did this make the world safer?” the answer remained no. Massie needed to be keptaway from society, but we did not need to kill him.

 

“Do executions make us safer? San Quentin’s former warden says no.”  By Jeanne Woodford October 2, 2008

Can we all give Baez a Break?

REMEMBER; Jose’ Baez, originally hired to defend a fraud and theft by check charges.  The reason he remain was because Ms. Anthony asked him to…I am sure he said..  (Not quoting him), Hey, do you want me to find another attorney to handle the new set of charges.  The other thing that bothers me is the assumption that the death penalty is a lighthearted decision, either by Mr. Lamar, or by Ms. Drane-Burdick.

I think the DP was originally a knee jerk reaction to the public’s outrage.  The removal of the death penalty punishment been removed because the judge ruled in favor of the defendants objection notice (Atty Lenamon); it was not a “change of heart” on the States part.  The state returned to the Death penalty notice,  to leverage the case. I do not think for a minute, Ms. Drane-Burdick would even allow Mr. Lamar to play “death row Bluff” with her own career on the line.

Update:

It’s official, Andrea D. Lyon is on the case. Per Orange County Records update

    Do you really believe that any of these posts cast reasonable doubt in anyone’s mind? People who lie do it because they believe they are smart enough to fool people into believing them. “You can fool some of the people…..”
