With thanks to Amnesty.org for keeping track of the national execution schedule (correct as of February 6, 2013), let’s consider what is going on in the United States right now.  In all the states that allow for capital punishment, consider this:

  • There are 27 executions scheduled from March 1, 2013 to December 31, 2015 right now in the United States.  
  • One is in Arizona (Edward Schad on 3/6) and one is set in Oklahoma (Robert Thacker on 3/12).
  • The rest are all in Texas and Ohio.  

That’s right: due in no small part to the efforts of Terence Lenamon (as discussed here in prior posts), there are no death penalty executions scheduled this year, or in 2014, or in 2015, in the State of Florida.

Here are the Executions Scheduled in Texas and Ohio:
