Message from supporter Tina M. White

Jan

There are now 16 states that have abolished the death penalty all together and several others that are presently looking at doing the same thing. In this day and age it is appalling that the courts still use this antiquated idea when so many flaws have been found within this system. It is not only inhuman; but also lacks the cost effectiveness that all of these states proclaim to be attempting to reach.
