I’m not sure why it took four decades to decide to execute this guy.
The death penalty should be standard procedure for Blacks who kill a single White, not just people who killed a bunch of us like this one.
Convicted “Stocking Strangler” Carlton Gary is filing a flurry of last-minute appeals to stop his execution by lethal injection, set for 7 p.m. Thursday at Georgia’s Diagnostic and Classification Prison in Jackson.
He’s to have a clemency hearing Wednesday in Atlanta before the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles, which has the authority to commute his death sentence to life without parole, or stay his execution for 90 days. The board declined to do either when Gary last came before it in 2009.
Gary has declined to order a last meal, the state Department of Corrections announced Tuesday, so he will be served a standard prison meal of grilled hamburger, hot dog, white beans, coleslaw and a grape beverage.
Six of the nogs victims.
