Jose Medellin was executed this evening after another delay and reconsideration by the United States Supreme Court.
Several have commented on news stories of the execution. Many are glad he is gone. Some are asking if we “feel better now that he is dead”.
My heart goes out to the families of Jennifer Ertman and Elizabeth Pena and even to the family of Jose Medellin. They are all in our prayers tonight. We even prayed for the soul of Jose.
Despite our sorrow for whole affair, please remember that as Texans we will not be shamed or “guilted” into commuting the sentences of these murderers. Nor will we ever equate their lives with the lives of their victims.
Peter Cantu, you are next.
