MISSOURI (USA): SERIAL KILLER JOSEPH PAUL FRANKLIN EXECUTED

November 20, 2013: Missouri corrections officials have executed Joseph Paul Franklin, a white supremacist serial killer who targeted blacks and Jews, including an interracial couple in Wisconsin.
Franklin, 63, was pronounced dead at 6:17 a.m. at the Missouri Eastern Correctional Center in Bonne Terre, said Mike O'Connell, a spokesman for the Missouri Department of Public Safety.
The U.S. Supreme Court had cleared the way earlier on Wednesday for the execution to move forward, lifting two final stays that would have allowed Franklin to challenge Missouri's new lethal drug protocol and his claim that he was too mentally incompetent to be executed.
Franklin, an avowed white supremacist, was convicted and sentenced to death for killing Gerald Gordon, 42, and wounding two other men in 1977. But he was also linked to the deaths of at least 18 other people.
He was convicted of killing eight people in the late 1970s and 1980s in racially motivated attacks around the country. The victims included two African-American men in Utah, two African-American teenagers in Ohio and an interracial couple in Wisconsin.
Franklin also had admitted to shooting Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt in 1978, paralyzing him. Flynt argued that Franklin should serve life in prison and not be executed.
Franklin also was acquitted of attempted murder for the May 29, 1980, shooting of civil rights leader Vernon Jordan outside the Marriott Inn in Fort Wayne, Ind., but later admitted involvement in the attack.
Franklin was the 35th inmate executed in the United States in 2013 and the first in Missouri in nearly three years, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.
Franklin was one of nearly two dozen plaintiffs challenging the constitutionality of Missouri's new execution protocol. In October, the state changed its protocols to allow for a compounded pentobarbital, a short-acting barbiturate, to be used in a lethal dose for executions.
The state also said it would make the compounding pharmacy mixing the drug a member of its official "execution team," which could allow the pharmacy's identity to be kept secret. (Sources: Reuters, 20/11/2013)
