Missouri Executes Killer Who Had Brain Injury – NYTimes.com
Mr. Clayton was working at his family’s sawmill in 1972 when a piece of wood penetrated his skull and pushed bone fragments into his brain. During surgery, doctors removed a portion of his frontal lobe, the part of the brain involved in impulse control and problem solving, among other functions.
Family members and medical experts who examined him said that Mr. Clayton subsequently began to have hallucinations, and that he became increasingly violent and unpredictable. He had an I.Q. of 71 — 29 points below the average I.Q. — and had schizophrenia and intense paranoia.
The majority of US Supreme Court Justices don’t mind legislating from the bench when it will directly benefit corporations. We can count the rulings that harmed 99% of us to unjustly enrich and unduly protect 1% of us.
We can also count the increasing number of individuals that have been denied a fair trial via malicious, overzealous prosecution that SCOTUS frankly doesn’t give a damn about.
Many of them, like Cecil Clayton, have already been killed.
