Don’t kill in Texas
Regarding your editorial "More than a life at stake in August" (July 21), this is the kind of nonsense we have come to expect from our ever-dwindling paper of record here on the west side of the Metroplex. You have chosen to come down on the side of a double murderer who, according to the judicial system in Texas, has been given adequate due process.
You want an international court’s decision to supersede that of a Texas court of appeals, a position the Supreme Court rightly recognizes as a violation not only of federalism but of state sovereignty. Texas is not bound by the International Criminal Court. If an illegal immigrant does not want to be subject to Texas justice, then he should not kill Texas residents.
