Supreme Court Upholds Stay of Execution for Harris

April 08, 1990

How do we know whether the death penalty serves as a deterrent to future murders if we have not had anyone executed since 1967--23 years ago!

Harris has had over 12 years of appeals, which the taxpayers paid for, which had brought him this far only to have some misdirected, bleeding-heart federal judge block a much-awaited, much-deserved execution.

How much more of our money will this murderer spend trying to dodge the fate which will eventually overtake him? Enough is enough!

If Harris is so very sorry for what he had done then let him "take it like a man" and putthe victims' families out of their misery with the cruel and unusual punishment he is putting them through.
