Tommy Arthur gets stay; State can't find rape kit

I'm so pleased that Tommy Arthur has been granted a stay on his execution. I was frustrated all day by his pending execution. I've blogged on him before. Again, I don't know if he's innocent yet all deserve justice. Even the B'ham News agrees. "Clearly" seems clear enough! As does, "The case already contains enough odd twists to raise questions about Arthur's guilt." That the State can't find the rape kit is also noted. Maybe this is Bob Riley's real excuse for not ordering DNA testing? It seemed like an easy decision yet Bob Riley just didn't see it that way. If the State lost the evidence then they would seem to be appropriately toast. Don't kill in my name! I'll sleep better tonight. John Gunn
