The execution of Humberto Leal Garcia was done in an illegal way. Taking personal opinion out of the mix, the American people should be protesting the death because it was done illegally. Every human has a right to a fair trial and the ability to live life without being executed without a due process.
Americans should protest against the illegal execution of Humberto Leal Garcia. I am not sure what good it would do but it might prevent another tragedy from happening. In the state of Texas, Humberto Leal Garcia was illegally executed. He was killed by people who bound him to a bed and put a potent poison in his blood until a heart attack happened. Americans should do something to stop this from happening again and put the people responsible to justice.
While the time for protest is over since he was executed in 2011, time for action to change some of the policies that led to his murder at the hands of the state of Texas is definitely required. The simple fact that no one ever informed him of his rights is just the start of the problems here.
There were many reasons that Garcia should not have been executed, but the state of Texas' legal proceedings found him eligible for the death penalty and the Supreme Court ruled that the decision was not unconstitutional - this is the standard for legal in the US, and applies to all cases.
Americans should not protest against the illegal execution of Humberto Leal Garcia. In order to be put on Death Row, you have to have done some thing very bad. Garcia raped, tortured, and killed an innocent woman in cold blood. He deserved to die for his crimes, regardless of what country he came from.
