Troy grabs himself a headline
The fact that the U.S. Supreme Court probably would find two of the three proposals -- executions in cases that don't involve a death and the ability to forbid defendants to be present as their accusers testify at trial -- to be unconstitutional seems almost beside the point. So does the fact that the Mobile County district attorney's office has prosecuted more than 500 such cases in the time that Democratic AG nominee John Tyson, Jr., has run the show. Tyson suggests a solution of his own: "What is needed is fully funded child advocacy centers around the state. That's where the protection for children really comes."
