Who has executed the most humans in Florida? The U.S. Supreme Court denied the stay of execution for Jerry Correll. Mr. Correll was scheduled to die in February 2015, but the Florida Supreme Court postponed his execution until the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that one of the lethal injections drugs used by Florida’s Execution Squad was indeed constitutional. The Florida Conference of Bishops which opposes capital punishment, had requested that the State of Florida, commute Mr. Correll’s sentence to life in prison.

In Florida, unlike most states of the United States of America, the death sentences are handed down by a judge and not a jury. Jurors are allowed to make recommendations! How nice!

Florida is one of just three states where death sentences do not require the unanimous vote by a jury.

Is this justice humane and fair? Or would you prefer to see justice Saudi style.

By the way Mr. Correll was convicted of killing in 1985, in the city of Orlando, his wife, pardon me, his ex-wife, her sister and mother, and a daughter who would have been 35 years-old-today had she been able to attend his just execution.
