Judge takes on Texas death penalty

Details here. And here's the reasoning by Judge Kevin Fine, whose colleague in Harris County set the execution date for José Ernesto Medellín a while back, as we then posted:

'Based on the moratorium (on the death penalty) in Illinois, the Innocence Project and more than 200 people being exonerated nationwide, it can only be concluded that innocent people have been executed. It's safe to assume we execute innocent people.'
