Tomorrow, Cleve Foster, convicted of a murder of which he still maintains his innocence, is set to face Texas's " death chamber" for the fourth time. On the three previous occasions, he's been given a last-minute stay of execution. Three times before , he has been taken on the hour long journey from
death row, and twice he even had time to be served his "last meal", before the news came through that the execution was to be halted.
The US likes to believe that it does not carry out "cruel and unusual punishments". I rest my case.
PS Correpondents are still desperately needed for death row inmates (in Texas, the inmates are kept in solitary confinement ALL THE TIME). Please think about it.
