Judge Halts Execution Of Texas Women's Death Row Inmate

A judge has halted the execution of Texas women's death row inmate Kimberly McCarthy, who was scheduled to die just after 6 p.m. for the July 1997 murder of a retired college professor during a robbery.

Her attorneys sent a late request to halt the execution to a Dallas County judge Tuesday just hours before McCarthy's scheduled execution.

District Judge Larry Mitchell agreed and moved the execution to April 3. 

University of Texas law professor Maurie Levin argued that McCarthy, who's black, was the subject of racial discrimination by the jury of 11 whites and only one black that convicted her.

The only thing that's racist about this is the idea that this women is a victim because of her race.  She murdered someone, got caught and then got a lawyer who agreed that all the people on the jury were qualified to judge her for her crimes.  Now that it's time to pull the switch and execute this MURDERER, we're all supposed to look the other way because she's black.
