TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:  JAMIE McCOSKEY, a Houston bartender convicted in the 1991 kidnapping and stabbing death of a 20-year-old man. McCoskey was one of 16 defendants sentenced to death in separate cases after the now-disgraced psychologist George Denkowski used his own, non-standard methods to conclude that none was developmentally disabled. His determination sank the defendants’ chances of having their death sentences declared unconstitutional.  Denkowski’s punishment included being barred from performing such evaluations in future.

  1. Cry me a friggin river. Scum like Jamie McCoskey deserve to be in constant writhing screaming agony with all the power of modern medicine helping to extend it for as long as possible. They should be on their knees thanking society everyday for not allowing that and for being disposed of in a manner that attempts to take all semblance of revenge out of it. So yeah, I am against the death penalty but accept it as unsatisfying comprimise to our real urge to find a way to right such wrongs as men like Jamie McCoskey have committed.

    • I absolutely totally agree. The fact that these animals are allowed to breath air for twenty years is an insult to their victims.
