"IQ Testing Is Unreliable and Outdated"...



Except in Federal and State laws in regards to black guys,



DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — The death sentence of a Florida man convicted of the 1981 killing of a convenience store clerk was vacated because his IQ is too low.

A judge in Daytona Beach last month signed an order setting aside the death sentence for Ted Herring.

Circuit Judge Joseph Will wrote in his decision that Herring has significant limitations in his functioning.

The state Attorney General's Office has appealed the decision to the Florida Supreme Court. If the order is affirmed, Herring will be sentenced to life in prison.

A 2002 Florida law prohibits the execution of anybody with an IQ below 70.

I guess that guy's attorneys also don't want to hear about how IQ tests are "culturally biased" either.
