Looks like Perdue was right about this

Governor Perdue got some undeserved heat last month for suggesting [1] the General Assembly was out to turn North Carolina into Mississippi. A glance at today’s news and events, however, seems to confirm once again that she was on the money.

From the good folks at Think Progress [2]: “Mississippi set to execute most inmates since 1950′s”

From Raleigh’s News & Observer: ”Racial Justice Act changes again in committee [3].”

From today’s NC House calendar [4]: Senate Bill 416: [5] A bill to amend death penalty procedures (i.e. a bill  to repeal the Racial Justice Act and generally make executions easier to obtain and carry out in North Carolina).
