Texas will execute man tied to one of the most gruesome hate crimes

A man is scheduled to be executed in Texas on Wednesday in connection with the 1998 killing of 49-year-old James Byrd Jr., a black man who was beaten by known white supremacists. Byrd Jr was chained to the back of a pickup truck and dragged for almost 3 miles before his body was dismembered. John William King, 44, will be put to death almost 21 years after being convicted.

Why hasn't this happened already? It's ridiculous that they let 21 years pass.
