Forty-year-old Bobby Hines was executed in Texas on October 24 for a murder committed when he was 19. He was the 488th person executed in Texas since 1982 and the 249th person since Governor Rick Perry took office.
Texas Moratorium Network (TMN) is a non-profit organization with the primary goal of mobilizing statewide support for a moratorium on executions in Texas. Significant death penalty reform in Texas, including a moratorium on executions, is a viable goal if the public is educated on the death penalty system and is encouraged to contact their elected representatives to urge passage of moratorium legislation.
