U.S. Executes 'Mentally Retarded' Marvin Wilson

Marvin Wilson, a man with an IQ of 61, was put to death tonight by the mentally deranged folks representing the State of Texas. The Supreme Court, or Scalia, refused to grant a stay. 

His lawyer's statement:  

We are gravely disappointed and profoundly saddened that the United States Supreme Court has refused to intervene to prevent tonight's scheduled execution of Marvin Wilson, who has an I.Q. of 61, placing him below the first percentile of human intelligence. Ten years ago, this Court categorically barred states from executing people with mental retardation. Yet, tonight Texas will end the life of a man who was diagnosed with mental retardation by a court-appointed, board certified specialist.

"Japan, South Korea, and the U.S. are the only established democracies in the world that still conduct executions."
