    This isn’t right! The man does not deserve death for this.

    Trop v. Dulles, 356 U.S. 86 (1958)
    The basic concept underlying the Eighth Amendment is nothing less than the dignity of man. While the State has the power to punish, the Amendment stands to assure that this power be exercised within the limits of civilized standards. Fines, imprisonment and even execution may be imposed depending upon the enormity of the crime, but any technique outside the bounds of these traditional penalties is constitutionally suspect.

    The “crime” of Jeff Wood is NOT enormous enough, to impose execution.
    Thanks for considering this fact, Dan Saturn

    On behalf of Austrian disabled persons I am urging Texas to stop the execution of innocent and mentally disabled Jeff Wood remembering the murder of the disabled in the Austrian concentration camps during the time of Nazi-fascism. Stop the execution of an innocent man!

    This man, legally acknowledged as not a killer, with an IQ of 80, should not be put to death under the “Law of Parties.” No one should who didn’t participate in murder. There’s no justice in this; please grant Jeff Wood clemency.

    I firmly believe that: “The death penalty is tainted by human failings too profound to cure, and that imposing it was an act of arrogance which diminishes our humanity.”
