INJUSTICE FROM OUR JUSTICES
In December 2000 in Wichita, the Carr brothers robbed, tortured, and kidnapped seven innocent people, killing five of them. In 2002, a jury found both of them guilty of capital murder and handed down the death penalty. In 2013, the Kansas Supreme Court overturned the sentences based on technicalities, thus requiring new trials.
This court has overturned three other death penalty cases like these, and they are not following their oath to uphold Kansas law. The U.S. Supreme Court has reversed every death penalty decision of the Kansas Supreme Court. How many incorrect decisions do Kansas voters have to accept?
“Kansans…do not think the death penalty is unconstitutional and indeed very much favor it, which might suggest that a retention election that goes before such people would not come out favorably for those justices who create Kansas law”.
– The Late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, Washington, D.C, Oct. 5th, 2016 when reviewing the Carr case.
