Gayland Bradford Wins Stay of Execution - No Execution on October 14

The October 14 scheduled execution of Gayland Bradford has been stayed. From the Austin American-Statesman:

A convicted killer set to die next week for the shooting death of a Dallas grocery store security guard more than two decades ago has won a reprieve from the U.S. Supreme Court.

Justice Antonin Scalia on Friday ordered a delay in the punishment of 42-year-old Gayland Bradford until the court decides whether to review an appeal in his case.

Bradford was set to die Thursday in Huntsville for the December 1988 shooting death of 29-year-old Brian Williams.

Bradford's attorney argued to the court that the trial court appointed an inexperienced and underqualified lawyer to handle some of Bradford's earlier appeals.

Bradford was 20 at the time of the shooting and on parole for robbery.

you know this judicial system is so fucked that they don't shit and how can they re-enact a murder case not being there?they're quick to convict and it appears that's their only concern about the matter set forward is a (fucking conviction).I pray that the families of both would find room in their hearts to let go and let God handle it,he (God)knows what's best for the victim as well as for the defendant.I pray God has mercy on both their soul.
