Original Post:

I previously made reference to a story in the print edition of Reason, which has now made it to their website. It's the story of a grossly obvious miscarriage of justice, and the web update has a small ray of hope in it:

Editor's note: Since the publication of this article, a judge of the Pearl River County Circuit Court has ruled that Cory Maye received incompetent legal representation during his sentencing phase, and has ordered a new sentencing hearing. As of September 21, 2006, Cory Maye has been removed from death row.

If you care at all about justice, you owe it to yourself to read this story and ask yourself if government courts actually have anything to do with the dispensing of justice.
