Beunka Adams' case has been on a roller coaster over the past few days, with a
stay of execution issued Monday, the stay lifted Wednesday, and the U.S.
Supreme Court expected to rule Thursday on whether his execution will take
place as scheduled that evening. If the execution is carried out, we
will do a live broadcast designed to lay out the realities, versus the
rhetoric, of the Texas death penalty. Spread the word.

TEXAS PLANS TO EXECUTE:
BEUNKA ADAMS, 29, and his fall partner, Richard Cobb, were convicted of
abducting and killing a man
during the robbery of a convenience store in East Texas. Cobb remains on death
row. Adams was 19 at
the time of the offense; Cobb was 18. On Monday, a federal judge in Texarkana
granted Adams a stay
of execution. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott appealed the stay, which was
lifted Wednesday by
the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. The case is now before the U.S.
Supreme Court. Background
