Texas is planning to carry out the first of its four scheduled June executions on Wednesday June 1 when Gayland Bradford is scheduled for execution. Bradford lost an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court last week. If the execution is not stayed, Bradford will be the fourth person executed in Texas in 2011 and the 468th person executed in Texas since 1982. He will be the 229th person executed in Texas since Rick Perry became governor.

To express your opposition to Gayland Bradford’s execution and to state your opinion on the Texas death penalty, call Governor Rick Perry at 512-463-2000.

Rick Perry is considering running for president of the United States. Perry’s death penalty enthusiasm will probably be a liability for him in many parts of the country where the governor is expected to exercise his executive powers in a more responsible manner than Perry did in the case of Todd Willingham.

Bradford was scheduled to be executed on October 14, 2010, but he received a stay of execution. Bradford was convicted of the shooting death of 29-year-old Brian Williams during a robbery of a food store in Dallas.

On June 1, Gayland Bradford is scheduled for execution.
On June 15, John Balentine is scheduled for execution.
On June 16, Taylor Lee is scheduled for execution.
On June 21, Milton Mathis is scheduled for execution.

    No reason to contact Gov. Perry for a reprieve. This POS should be executed. He did the crime and now it's time to go face-to-face with the ultimate judge!

    Hey Ben, maybe you'll get to like the Air Force, zooming all over the sky and shouting ROGER and WILCO and everything. Maybe it won't be so bad.

    Put him down and do it now.
    No more appeals, no mercy for this piece of human detritus.

    Gayland Bradford deserves a much more painfull death than the one he will receive tonight.
    An animal like him that would shoot a young man in the back does not deserve a place in this world. I hope there is an after-life where this POS can get his true reward.

    Brian was a kind liberal kid that needed a job and wanted to help the community. He did not deserve to die that way. I blame Dallas politics more than anything.
