Cory Maye

I've been remiss in not blogging this situation and I thank Lawrence Krubner for bringing it gently to my attention.

As Lawrence told me that Radley Balko brought the story to the attention of the world o'blog, I went over and read up on it and I do have to say...something smells. In fact, it reeks.

Mississippi Still Burning: Cory Maye’s Public Defender Fired (Apparently for taking the case. He was warned he'd lose his job if he pursued it.)

What We Now Know is another recap of the story.

Those are both from this month, one is from a blog, the other is, I believe, a Canadian site. The next "news" coverage that Google News can find for me is from December 17 and it was a couple of paragraphs in the middle of an opinion column.

It seems that the MSM has, indeed, elected to ignore this story.

So, I guess it's up to us to make a big enough fuss about it that they have to acknowledge it. But we have to do it now. A man on Death Row doesn't have a lot of time.
