nation in carrying out capital punishment and accounts for more than onethird of all executions in the United States since the Supreme Court in 1976 allowed the death penalty to resume This years unprecedented total stems from a combination of factors including longtime inmates exhausting their appeals new laws limiting appeals and court rejection of a challenge to the Texas death penalty law that contributed to a lull in executions last year Its a good day to Behringer said speaking firmly and quickly while strapped to the death chamber gurney I walked in here like a man and I am leaving
