Another Death Warrant in Florida

by | Sep 5, 2017

 

Governor Rick Scott signs another death warrant.

This time, for Cary Michael Lambrix. The execution is scheduled for October 5.

Lambrix has had multiple death warrants signed for his execution.

Scott signed a warrant for Lambrix last year but the executions for Lambrix and Mark James Asay were put on hold after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the system used in Florida.

The issue has since been worked out and Florida and Asay was executed last week.

Lambrix was convicted of murdering Aleisha Bryant and Clarence Moore in 1983.

Lambrix was also scheduled to be executed in 1988. The Florida Supreme Court issued a stay which was lifted by a federal judge in 1992.

    They should be execute within 90 days. I wish I could bring back the victims so you liberals could hear their pleas. I am sure they did not want to die. I will be the voice for the victims. We are a nation of laws start enforcing them. The recidivism rate would be zero.

      Do you know 159 people have been exonerated from death row?

      In addition, I strong believe Lambrix is innocent.

      He did not get a fair trial. Here’s what I have:

      In 2014 Michael Lambrix‘s attorney filed application for leave to file second or successive habeas corpus petition based upon newly discovered evidence establishing innocence. It is an extraordinary document, revealing that:
      (1) Michael was told that if he insisted on testifying, which he wished to do, he would be forced to represent himself. Thus he was forced to choose between his right to counsel, and his right to testify. When Michael did testify in 2006, the State was unable to impeach his account of what happened.
      (2) The jury had preconceived opinions of Michael’s guilt, and counsel failed to strike jurors who showed bias and prejudice, after being intimidated by the judge.
      (3) The defense were not allowed to impeach the State’s main witness Frances Smith, who also lied on the stand by denying that she had been given immunity from prosecution in exchange for her testimony ( which in any case was inconsistent with the autopsy evidence ).
      (4) The State used scare tactics to persuade Deborah Hanzel to give false testimony to corroborate Smith’s testimony. At a post-conviction hearing, Hanzel testified that her testimony was false, and explained how she had been coerced by lead investigator “Bob” Daniels, who told her that Lambrix would harm her children if she failed to testify.
      (5) At a post-conviction hearing, Smith admitted she had a sexual relationship with lead investigator Daniels, who coached her how to testify.
      (6) The defense were not allowed to elicit testimony that Clarence Moore was a career criminal, and had a criminal history that included assaulting women while intoxicated.
      In spite of the manifest unfairness of his trial, Michael’s application for leave to file a successive habeas petition was denied, and he remains on Florida death row, facing imminent execution.

    No, as usual you are wrong again Barwood. Your number is fake and has no validity to it. Mind your own killers in the UK. You won’t because you would be flogged in public. The ones in the US are none of your damn business. Should we all call you Margot now, fraud? Your attempts to interfere with the justice system here have entered a new low and is an actual crime. Read up on american law system which you know nothing about.
