Parole board now Joe Bryan's only hope after TX CCA's shameful rejection of his habeas writ

The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals' rejection of Joe Bryan's habeas corpus writ may rank as its most embarrassing moment since the 1990s when they refused to recognize DNA evidence exonerating Roy Criner. That episode spurred the Legislature to intervene in 2001 to create a vehicle for DNA exonerations. Will their arrogant, unexplained rejection of Bryan's claims earn a similar backlash?Bryan's case rose to national prominence after two key events: 1) in 2018, the Texas Forensic Science Commiss...

Abrams themselves. As time goes on, it only seems to be getting worse, including a recently confirmed death that is quickly glossed over in the film’s climax, and it involves the demise of a Rebel hero from Return of the Jedi.

Bray Wyatt's Fantastic Instagram Post Is A Perfect Breadcrumb For Royal Rumble Match

Bray Wyatt is proving to be adept at furthering his character even when he isn't present for WWE programming. On Friday, Wyatt posted a chilling message to his Instagram account. It perfectly balances fan-connection through references to real events with storyline reminders of the sinister nature of The Fiend persona.
