Arkansas Abolish Responds to Execution Date Request for Jack Greene

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge has requested the Governor to set an execution date for Arkansas inmate Jack Gordon Greene. Despite Greene displaying clear signs of mental illness and documented brain damage, he has been on death row since 1993 for twenty-four years. Arkansas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty has responded with a statement calling for Governor Hutchinson to not set an execution date for Greene. “Jack Greene is not competent to be executed, and capital punishment should not be used on vulnerable people like the severely mentally ill. Tell the Governor that Arkansans are tired of these killings and the international shame that it brings on our state!”
