U.S. District Court Judge Jeremy Fogel has cleared the way for California's first execution since 2006 "after the state revised its lethal injection procedures." Albert Greenwood Brown, convicted of raping and murdering a 15-year-old Riverside girl in 1980, will be the unlucky recipient in today's ruling, which cited the state's "'extensive efforts to address the court's concerns' that the previous lethal injection procedure was unconstitutional." What's more, Brown will also be the first inmate to test drive San Quinten's new execution chamber. Next week's execution, if pro-death penalty folks have taught us anything, will deter all murders and all rapes from happening again, ever. [KTVU]
