MISSISSIPPI----new execution date

Execution date set for Miss. inmate


The state Supreme Court has set Dale Leo Bishop's execution for July 23.

Bishop would become the 2nd death row inmate put to death in Mississippi since the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the use of lethal injection in April.

State Attorney General Jim Hood had asked the state Supreme Court to set Bishop's execution on or before July 23.

Bishop, 34, was convicted and sentenced to death in 2000 for the kidnapping and slaying of 22-year-old Marcus Gentry of Fulton, who was beaten with a claw hammer on a dirt logging road outside Saltillo on Dec. 10, 1998.

I ask you, Governor Barbour, to stop your state's execution of Dale Leo Bishop. Mr. Bishop is scheduled to die next Tuesday, 07/22/2008, at 6:00PM at the State Penitentiary in Parchman, Mississippi, for the 1998 murder of Mark Gentry.



As happens routinely in your state, Mr. Bishop failed to receive his constitutionally guaranteed fair trail. His trial lawyers botched his case in many ways, including failing to mention Mr. Bishop’s lifelong psychiatric problems. Further, no evidence was offered during the trial of intent to murder the victim, thus disqualifying the case from capital sentencing. Finally, your state’s execution protocol will result in excruciating pain and suffering, making it void under the ‘cruel and unusual punishment’ clause of the United States Constitution. Governor Barbour, for procedural, legal and humanitarian reasons, you must cancel this execution!



Former Attorney General of the United States Janet Reno, as well as myriads of scholars, can find no evidence that the death penalty deters capital crimes. In fact, the warden of the famous Sing Sing prison believes that the death penalty exacerbates the violence in his facility by setting an example of cold-blooded killing. Recent studies show that the largest increase in capital crimes is in Texas, the state which executes the most people. As for vengeance, that is the Lord's, not the governments.

Please, Governor Barbour, stop this killing of Dale Bishop. If this execution goes forward, look around this country for the black bands worn and the church bells tolled in protest of this injustice.

Thank you.
