Death Trip: The American Way of Execution.
Mr. Sherrill's article provides an excellent summary of the U.S.
Supreme Court decisions on the Death Penalty, including those that have
contradicted or lessened its decision in the landmark Gregg v.
Georgia case, and those that have `muddied the judicial waters'.
The article also details electric chair and lethal injection executions
`gone wrong', police and prosecutor injustices, and even a judge who
resisted releasing a prisoner who had been proven innocent by DNA
It is extremely well written and would be as enjoyable to read as a good
novel---if it weren't for its subject matter.
