Facts: Injustices concerning James Case
James was excluded from all DNA test as being the shooter. In addition, he tested negative for any gun powder residue
James didn’t have ANY significant legal representation before or during his trial, He was denied legal counsel despite requesting it twice and finally when appointed, his attorney thoroughly failed to uphold his rights and basically gave the prosecution ‘free reign’ to sentence him to death. His trial attorney was Pro-death penalty.
James wasn’t even given the benefit of a fair trial, and the trial itself was riddled with racism, despite U.S laws and Constitution as Texas legislation. Before trial, during the jury selection, 100% of all minority jurors (Blacks and Hispanics) were purposely and discriminatorally struck (cancelled) from being on the jury— By law, this grave injustice of an error should permit James to have a new trial. Dallas County is known for it’s blatant racism with the prosecution as exposed with the case of Thomas Miller -El (who is not on death row any more)
His constitutional rights were further violated when the judge failed to declare a ‘mistrial’ after the action of the above mentioned. Especially in light of the legal rulings in the Thomas Miller-El case, which exposed the blatant practice of Dallas County Prosecutors PURPOSELY excluding Blacks, Hispanics and other minorities form juries. Especially in Capital cases
Even though James case is not even remotely gang related, and there’s no proof whatsoever to support this claim, it was used against him to sentence him to death and say he’d be a ‘future danger’. Even so, NO EVIDENCE of gang-membership criminal history, etc. could be presented at trial to support it.
Before, during and after the arrest he was heavily drugged to the point of being delusional and having auditory hallucinations – as diagnosed by a professional psych assessor. During this time, despite the jails OWN written policy and recommendations of the jails psych assessor and psychiatrists, he was made to be interviewed by media, while still not fully coherent about his situation and seriousness of the charges he faced.
James NEVER consented to it, nor signed written consent to be interviewed and none could be presented by prosecutors at trial. Policy states they MUST have it to conduct interviews. Nonetheless, the interview(s) was used to sentence him to death.
The experts and psych assessor’s who evaluated James, who’s testimony were CRITICALLY relevant and would’ve been a more definite fact to his mental state, were purposely denied to be heard before the jury, despite Texas law that permits it. Mitigation testimony is Key in Capital Death Penalty cases.
That’s a brief description of the injustice received at the hands of the Texas Judicial system. Death Row inmates are not allowed to work and have no way of supporting their selves. Death Row inmates spend 22-23 hours a day locked in a cell with a steel door, four foot tall wall mounted lights periodically turned on for added sensory deprivation. Basic necessities consists of small bars – about 1” of lye soap. Tooth powder which makes your gums bleed rather than clean your teeth. Dirty under clothes and oversized jumpers.
