Two execution warrants

posted Feb 5, 2013, 10:38 AM by Kathryn Hamoudah

We’re so sorry to share the news that two execution warrants just came down in Georgia: Warren Hill is set for Feb. 19-26 and Andrew Cook is set for Feb. 21-28.

 

We are checking in with their lawyers and we’ll be in touch as soon as possible about next steps.

 

This brazen act is reflective of the way the Department Corrections operates as though they aren’t accountable to anybody. We are here to remind them that there are thousands of Georgians who are opposed to state sanctioned killing.  

 

As we shared yesterday, Georgia’s death penalty system was launched into national and international news in 2011 when the Georgia Department of Corrections’ illegal practice of purchasing lethal injection drugs from a fly-by-night shop behind a driving school in London was exposed, prompting the DEA to raid and seize the black market drugs.
