Texas Plans to Defy International Court of Justice

According to yesterday's Houston Chronicle, Texas will go ahead with the scheduled 5 August execution of Houston rapist-killer Jose Medellin. On Wednesday, the International Court of Justice ordered the United States not to execute Medellin and others pending its final ruling in a case filed before the Court by Mexico. The newspaper quotes a spokesperson for Governor Rick Perry. Another example of lawlessness from the country much of the world once looked to for moral leadership.
