"There is no way to tell how many of the over 1,000 people executed since 1976 may also have been innocent. Courts do not generally entertain claims of innocence when the defendant is dead. Defense attorneys move on to other cases where clients' lives can still be saved. Some cases with strong evidence of innocence include:
Carlos DeLuna Texas Conviction: 1983, Executed: 1989
Ruben Cantu Texas Convicted: 1985, Executed: 1993
Larry Griffin Missouri Conviction: 1981, Executed: 1995
Joseph O'Dell Virginia Conviction: 1986, Executed: 1997
David Spence Texas Conviction: 1984, Executed: 1997
Leo Jones Florida Convicted: 1981, Executed: 1998
Gary Graham Texas Convicted: 1981, Executed: 2000
Cameron Willingham Texas Convicted: 1992, Executed: 2004
Also Noted - Post-humous exonerations of people wrongfully executed prior to 1976."
NOTHING prior to 1976 has ANY relevance whatsoever.
you do not list a single case with any reasonable doubt. nutjobs like to pop up with willingham, who is a loser from the gate. there is absolutely NO doubt of his guilt.

no lad, you have to come up with something at least REMOTELY close to doubt before you'll get off the ground. you haven't yet
