CRIME IN HOWARD
« on: March 23, 2016, 10:19:39 AM »
We saw where Howard Police and or Sheriffs Office  arrested some People in Howard for Possession of Various Drugs and Drug Paraphernalia Myrna and I were Shocked, the House where it Happened was on Pine Street, I think., we did not remember anything like this when we lived there. Has Howard gone Down Hill that much? When we lived in Bartlesville they arrested a Women foe making Meth, when they asked her why she came in to Walmart to do it, she said she DID NOT have the Money to buy all of the ingredients and do it at Home. What is Howard, Elk County and this ONCE Great Nation Coming to. We need the Dockings, of Ronald Reagan and either one of the Bush's back. Unfortunately it is to late, OBUMA has already taken over and the Clintons are as Bad as he is.

This might be a good time for someone to update us on the murder of the Greenwood County Sheriff's murder in 2005.

That killing was drug related. One of our forum members was on the 2007 jury and the perp was sentenced to death but the Kansas Supreme Court overturned the conviction in 2012 due to a technicality.

Anyone have an update?

In 2013, the US Supreme Court disagreed with the 2012 Kansas Supreme Court objection and upheld the conviction and death sentence imposed in 2007 for the 2005 murder of the Greenwood County Sheriff.

Here is the latest I could find from May 2015 from the Associated Press.



TOPEKA [May 1, 2015]
Kansas’ highest court has halted its review of the capital murder case stemming from the Greenwood County sheriff’s death because the U.S. Supreme Court is reviewing other death penalty cases from the state.
The Kansas Supreme Court issued an order this week stopping proceedings in the case of Scott Cheever, who was sentenced to die for the 2005 shooting of Greenwood County Sheriff Matt Samuels during a drug raid.

The Kansas court raised the issue itself earlier this month and said U.S. Supreme Court decisions in other state cases could apply to Cheever’s case. Both the state attorney general’s office and Cheever’s attorney agreed in brief responses to the Kansas court that a delay was appropriate.

The Kansas court has not upheld any death sentence since the state reinstated capital punishment in 1994, and its last legal executions, by hanging, were in 1965.

The state’s highest court in 2012 overturned Cheever’s capital murder conviction. It said Cheever’s right against self-incrimination was violated by prosecutors who used a court-ordered mental evaluation from a different trial against him.

But the U.S. Supreme Court in 2013 overturned the decision, noting that Cheever’s own expert raised the issue of whether methamphetamine use had damaged his brain. It ordered the Kansas court to review the case again.


The first execution in Kansas took place in 1853 and was by firing squad.

All executions since then have been by hanging with the last having taken place in 1965 when a double hanging occurred. The current method of execution is by drugs but this method has never been used.

In 1945, 14 Germans were executed at Fort Leavenworth.

In total, 58 people have been executed in Kansas, including the number at Fort Leavenworth, since the first in 1853.
