Dutisn Higgs was executed after am on 1/16.
He had COVID-19 in December. At trial, the jury didn’t get adequate information about his traumatic childhood. The US system makes it rare to succeed in appealing on these grounds after trial, further proof we must #EndTheDethPenalty
He is the 13th and final person executed in the Trump administration’s killing spree.
The US had not seen federal executions from a lame duck president in over century.
We can’t undo what’s been done, but we can stop it from ever happening again. #AbolishTheDeathPenalty
Tell your governor and mayor that you want them to denounce white supremacists, prohibit firearms in Capitols and public spaces, and take measures to keep your constituents and communities safe from violence and armed intimidation by white supremacists:
"There must be, where there is sufficient evidence, prosecution of all government officials, personnel, and contractors who are responsible for the abuses committed during this shameful period of our history — no matter their current or former level of office."
“This is a damning condemnation of the Trump administration’s inhumane family separation policy. This report reinforces what we already knew: the cruelty was the point and the government ripped families apart intentionally to keep families from seeking safety here.
Tonight, Corey Johnson is the 12th person executed by the Trump administration.
Despite intellectual disability and having recently had COVID-19, SCOTUS denied his appeal.
There is no reform to bring sense, fairness, or humanity to this punishment. #AbolishTheDeathPenalty
