A Broken Promise in Texas: Race, the Death Penalty and the Duane Buck Case
Friday, May 10, 2013
By:New York TImes
In an editorial, the New York Times highlighted the racism and injustice that permeate the death sentence of LDF client Duane Buck. Mr. Buck was sentence to death in a proceeding in which the jury was told he was dangerous because he was black. LDF represents Mr. Buck in his effort to obtain a fair sentencing hearing that is not infected by racism.
