At the Huffington Post, noted criminal law expert Bianca Jagger - whom, we feel safe to assume, opposes the death penalty in any and all instances - is calling upon the Governor of Virginia to halt today's execution of Teresa Lewis, in part, because Lewis "will be the first woman to be put to death by the State of Virginia since 1912." Which is to say, no one is particularly concerned about the gender gaps in our prisons, or on death row. Those gaps are to be protected, if not celebrated.
P.S. A comment at TalkLeft observes, "I believe the lowest result of the several IQ tests she took (all of them were administered post-arrest) was 72 ... All of the IQ tests were administered after she was arrested for the murders. ie., she had every reason to purposely try do poorly on the tests. And she also is a HS grad, had never failed a class, had earned a nursing assistant certification and had raised a child in addition for caring for her aged parents. I don't for a second suggest she's the brightest crayon in the box, but dumb people murder others just as dead as smart people."
