Disupted Forensics: Was Innocent Man Texecuted?

Did Texas execute an innocent man in in 2004? An exhaustive investigation by award winning Chicago Tribune investigative reporters Steve Mills and Maurice Possley indicate the answer as to Cameron Todd Willingham may well be yes, based upon disputed forensics.

Texas continues to lead the nation in executions:

Texas has the dubious distinction in leading the nation in the number of people it has executed, the number of juvenile offenders on death row and the number of juvenile offenders it has executed. In addition, the state ranks second in the overall number of people on
death row and second in the number of women on death row.

The Texas Coalition Against the Death penalty aptly notes that Texas' death penalty is "an embarrassment beyond belief and repair."
