Governor Ready to Sign More Death Warrants

July 2nd, 2008 by flanews

Death Row opponents held a vigil at the state Capitol today. The ceremony was in protest to Floridas first execution in more than a month. The group Citizens Against the Death Penalty says capital punishment is inhuman. Chairwoman of the Tallahassee Citizens against the Death Penalty group says since last nights execution of Mark Schwab went as planned, she expect more people to be executed soon.

“This one went off last night without a hitch, as they like to say, I
think this may open the door for a number of death warrants to be signed,” said Schwab.

Governor Charlie Crist said he plans to speed up the process by signing more death warrants.

“It’s the first time as a guy who signed the death warrant and its a
duty. I support the death penalty and on behalf of the victims
I’m glad justice was done,” said Crist.

Schwab was the first person executed in Florida since a botch execution in 2006.
