The court agreed that Edward Bracey's low IQ was sufficient to exempt him from being zapped.
Bracey was convicted of killing 21-year-old police officer Daniel Boyle in 1991. That was a generation before killing cops was considered cool by the predatory left.
• The predatory left persistently denies settled science that a disparity in intelligence exists between races; until, of course, that disparity spares the life of a victim of white privilege.

Pennsylvania’s high court says a man convicted of murdering a Philadelphia police officer can’t be executed because he has an IQ of 74.
The state Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld a lower court ruling that Edward Bracey’s below-average intellectual functioning made him ineligible for the death penalty.
Bracey is serving a life sentence without possibility of parole in the 1991 murder of 21-year-old officer Daniel Boyle.
Boyle’s sister tells the Grand Forks Herald in North Dakota that the ruling was excruciating, unfair and not justice.

The Pennsylvania court voted 4-1 to uphold Judge M. Teresa Sarmina’s January 2014 ruling sparing the 52-year-old Bracey.
The U.S. Supreme Court has barred execution of anyone deemed mentally disabled by a state.
