There have been cases where evidence that a person is innocent of murder results from a "prison confession." and it happens at the last moment, where
the innocent man is already in the chair. In the case of murder a conviction these days is very difficult to prosecute without a body, weapon and
Motive such as a threat or that the inmate would have considered killing him is often not enough for a conviction.
How do I feel about the idea that someone was set up and I am a Governor of a State?
I would order a stay as long as the information is a good as the OP claims, order a new trial.
In terms of the morality of killing a person found guilty of murder keep in mind that a members asked for the case.
That is important because there is a difference between a case where say a man kills another man over a dispute and both men were armed, a case where
people were cut up into pieces while alive.
Killing people that are guilty of murder in the past to a some extent was due the potential of escape. A issue is, the extent to which one placed
today in death row, has a reasonable chance of escape to commit more murders. "Supermax" Prisons, are alleged to be impossible to escape from and
thus far no one has ever escaped.
Perhaps it is time to look again at the reasoning behind letting the inmate live and let God sort it out.
Perhaps one day a Axe Murder will escape from a Supermax prison and kill 100's of people.
