Interesting Place # 58 – Texas

Texas has executed 398 convicts since it resumed the practice in 1982.

(Six years after the U.S. Supreme Court lifted a ban on capital punishment, they now far exceed second-place Virginia where 98 executions have taken place since the ban was lifted. Texas has five executions scheduled for August. Well I guess it’s one way to get into the Guinness Book of Records.)
