Study Determines Nearly 5% of Inmates Sentenced to Death in Texas Were The Wrong Prisoners

A study conducted over the past quarter century has determined that 4.6% of all inmates sentenced to death in the state of Texas since 1998 happened to be the wrong prisoners. When asked to respond to the startling revelation, Governor Greg Abbott, who was first elected governor of Texas in 2014, then reelected twice in 2018 and 2022, said, “It’s clear we have some work to do in this area. I think one thing that’ll bring that number down is to double or even triple the amount of convicted criminals who receive that rightful sentence.” He also suggested that, in light of the news, he had no more plans to drop asylum seekers off at the doorsteps of the homes of political opponents in other states, “whether it’s a holiday or not.” The third-term governor concluded, “These illegals crossing our border have a much greater role to play at this time.” A spokesperson for former President George W. Bush, who also served as governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000, and began his second term at the onset of the study, expressed that the “news blew him away,” and he’s considering working on another book of paintings, this time centered around men and women on death row.
