Schwarzenegger for Beardslee execution: The murderer knew what he was doing

Gov. &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/fun/2003/03/07/44171.html ' target=_blank>Arnold Schwarzenegger and the U.S. &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/society/2002/06/25/31130.html ' target=_blank>Supreme Court refused this afternoon to block the execution of Donald Beardslee, who is scheduled to be put to death by lethal injection at a minute past midnight for murdering two young Peninsula women in 1981.

Schwarzenegger denied a clemency request by Beardslee's lawyers, who said the 61-year-old prisoner suffers from serious brain damage that prevented him from making independent judgments at the time of the killings. The governor said Beardslee apparently has a mental impairment but had acted purposefully in committing the murders and trying to cover them up.

"There is no question in my mind that at the time Beardslee committed the murders he knew what he was doing – and he knew it was wrong," Schwarzenegger said, reports San Francisco Chronicle.
