Death penalty foes object to execution of Jack Greene


The Arkansas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty is urging Gov. Asa Hutchinson not to set an execution date for Jack Greene,  sentenced to die for a 1991 slaying in Johnson County. He's exhausted appeals and Attorney General Leslie Rutledge asked the governor to set a date.

The article notes his defense counsel's description of Greene as mentally ill. Said the Coalition.

Apparently, our Governor and Attorney General have learned nothing from the horrors our state faced during their April plan to execute 8 men in 10 days. Please stand with us by calling the Governor, at 501-682-2345, and asking him to refrain from setting an execution date for Jack Greene. Jack Greene is not competent to be executed, and capital punishment should not be used on vulnerable people like the severely mentally ill. Tell the Governor that Arkansans are tired of these killings and the international shame that it brings on our state!
