So if you have thoughts on the death penalty, please share them here.
Just imagine if it was you, or your friend, or family sitting innocent
on death row. FYI One of my favorite songs has the line, “If you’re not
going to make something better, than you’re just IN THE WAY!” Let’s
all make something better right now.

It could have been worse. He could have been executed. That is one of the reasons I am anti death penalty. Since we cannot give life, we have no right to give death. There are so many miscarriages of justice that it is just not safe to be handing out the death penalty.
For twenty years this man was considered to be a murderer. He could have been killed. Now more evidence comes along to exonerate him. At least he cam be compensated - if he'd been executed, we wouldn't have been able to bring him back from the dead.
