How can humans legally take lives, except in self-defense? Where is the moral justification for that in any political dogma?
 
Ms. Montgomery was executed - as you know. You may not know the horrific abuse and torture she suffered, first as a child then in two marriages. It caused, among other things, traumatic brain injury - a scan revealed severe physical brain damage. She also suffered from epilepsy, bipolar disorder, etc. - likely caused by her severe abuse.
I read an article by her attorney - Ms. Montgomery had long been unresponsive, with severe dissociation if not full-blown psychosis. On the day of her execution, there's no way to know if she even knew what was happening.

The system failed her. Her parents first and foremost, of course. The police officer(s) who returned her to the abusive home when she escaped. The authorities who refused to investigate her sister's pleas - inexplicably, she'd been removed from the house, leaving Lisa behind.  The courts that refused to hear evidence of her decades of abuse. The prison staff who, in a final, crushing indignity, denied her spiritual advisor's request to be with her in the chamber.

Lisa Montgomery had no peace, no love, no hope. I hope there's a Heaven for her - this life was certainly Hell.

a case of an over-aggressive prosecutor?

New DNA Evidence Likely Exonerates a Texas Death Row Inmate. The Government Won't Test It.

Rodney Reed is set to die by lethal injection in less than two weeks.

Time is running out for Rodney Reed, a Texas man on death row who is scheduled to die on November 20. There are many reasons to doubt Reed's guilt, but the most glaring one is that several experts have concluded it's scientifically impossible. The state is set to execute Reed anyway.

Reed, who was convicted in 1998 for the murder of 19-year-old Stacey Stites, will be put to death by lethal injection in just under two weeks unless Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) intervenes. A group of bipartisan state legislators made their plea for a reprieve on Tuesday, asking for more time to review the mounting body of evidence that Reed did not kill Stites.

The Innocence Project, which is representing Reed, has reported on a litany of evidentiary and procedural problems that suggest Reed was convicted despite his innocence. Three forensic experts for the state filed formal affidavits explaining that the estimated time of death presented by prosecutors at trial was inaccurate, which "makes the timeline for Reed killing Stites implausible," the Innocence Project notes.

"The Texas Department of Public Safety (who employed the State's expert Karen Blakely), the Bode Cellmark Forensics Laboratory (who employed the State's retained expert Meghan Clement), and the State's forensic pathologist Dr. Roberto Bayardo, have all now acknowledged that the scientific opinions offered by the State to tie Mr. Reed to the murder were in error," Reed's 2018 appeal reads.

That appeal was denied.

if you're reading this, please take another 60 seconds and tell the gov to have a look

 
The murder was right here in Bastrop county, so it's been in the local news for years. I don't know if he did it or not, but I do know the system is hopelessly broken. See 'Michael Morton' and 'Cameron Todd Willingham' for other examples (among many, sadly). Mr. Morton spent 25 years on death row before DNA evidence cleared him. Mr. Willingham wasn't so lucky. Independent arson forensics, including a full-scale test burn, revealed the fire was caused by a space heater. Not arson. Too late for Mr. Willingham, however. He was executed before the arson investigators' testimony was debunked.

Agreed.

Rape is a terrible crime, no matter who it is committed against.

Being an emotional crime, society must be very cautious when imposing penalties to see that justice is not just ice.
