Governor Ted Strickland has issued reprieves to three Death Row inmates yesterday, including James Filiaggi. In the Warrant of Reprieve the Governor states, “During my tenure as Governor, before I allow an execution to proceed, my staff and I will have conducted a comprehensive, thorough and searching review of the case to determine if any exercise of executive clemency is appropriate. The brief time I have been Governor has not allowed me sufficient time to conduct that type of review and there is not sufficient time before these scheduled executions to complete that type of review.”

Filiaggi, who was to be executed on April 24, 2007, along with the other two will remain incarcerated in the custody of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. The Warrant goes on to say that the Department should carry out the inmate’s sentences on the last date of their respective reprieves at a time established on that date by the Department.

What about those who have been on DR even longer? I know Ronald Post (murdered Helen Vantz in '84 at motel near the Midway Mall) has been there since '85 or '86. We need a limit on the time for appeals, not the number of appeals.

If you've proven yourself unable to live within society without harming others, what good is your life? Your life should end.
