More typical garbage from the DPIC the total number on death rows is 3230 as of Dec 31, 2012, It was 3231 but OK announced Karl Myers died on Dec 28. The use of odd dates to make figures bend their way is typical.

"The nation also saw a decrease in the number of people on its death rows - 3,120 inmates were under death sentences, a decrease from 3,222 in 2011, according to the center."

Again that is just one of the many things slanted in the report by the organization.

Thank you Paul Purpura, NOLA.com of The Times-Picayune for pointing out that the DPIC is anti-death penalty. Most media does not make that distinction.

Hey, Sleeze, why don't you quit stalking, marking icons, and get a real life. I know that you cannot even come close to proving anything I say is wrong, because that would require a brain and you have long ago demonstrated that you do not have one!

BTW I just verified my figures with the Florida Department of Justice to make sure that my figures and theirs were the same. Despite what the DPIC says are the number of death sentences (7) in Florida for 2012 or even through April of 2012 NEITHER OF THE DPIC FIGURES ARE CORRECT.

Wonders never cease, they were wrong again.

I see that Sleeze is at it again! She cannot refute honestly anything that I say, she just keeps marking. It makes you wonder how may names she uses.
