I remember back in the 80s when a killer at Huntsville was scheduled to die. He had killed a clerk in cold blood at a 7-11 type place. The students from Sam Houston were out there holding signs along the lines of "We pay for our beer, it's time Smith (or whatever the hell his name was) he does too"
