    Why has Texas executed 5x as many prisoners than any other State in the US?

    From the BBC:
    The death penalty is a legal punishment in 31 US states

    Since 1976 Texas has carried out the most executions (540), followed by Oklahoma and Virginia (both 112)

    In July 2016, there were 2,095 inmates on death row in the US

    California has the most prisoners on death row, 741, but has carried out only 13 executions since 1976


    Is there a correlation between masturbating over hand weapons and killing inmates?

    Is there a connection between listening to both kinds of music: country and western (old Blues bros. reference) and the need to murder criminals?

    Are there just more evil people down there???

    No matter what the cause, there's no reason to miss a good killing!

    Just pop by this website:
    http://www.deathpenaltyinfo.org/upcoming-executions

    You can see who's scheduled to be slain when! Really!
    Classic entertainment for the whole family.

    The statistics aren't good for the pale skin criminals though. Since 2010 there's been a significant drop in black executions (well, they just get shot on the street by the police; saves prison costs) and a steep increase in white executions.

    Is white the new orange?
