Linda Carty, a UK citizen in Texas, is due for lethal injection. I'm not too bothered about that. But what worries me greatly is that after admitting that she received inadequate defense at her trial, the Texas court is refusing to overturn the sentence.
In addition, there is new evidence which they are refusing to consider.
It would be nice to think that the system is at least *trying* to work, but they keep proving me wrong on that point, so it's time to kick up a fuss, and make them stare at their shoes and mumble an apology. My good friend Sian has a plan, so have a look at her group http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=136515034231 and do your part. You don't even need to join - just go and have a rummage on the BBC website, and, if you're up to it, send a letter.
