In my own words this means
An execution in Texas was a moral failure and a legal one
April 4, 2014
The state of Texas on Thursday executed a man named Tommy Sells after a series of whipsawing court decisions that ultimately denied Sells his due process right to investigate whether the lethal injection met constitutional standards. This is no defense of Sells. If evil exists in this world, he was it , responsible for a series of known heinous murders, and who knows how many others. But that is still insufficient cause for the government to kill him. It is sufficient cause to have locked Sells away from society until he died of natural causes.
