as i stated, i did not want his to be a debate on the death penalty. this was meant to discuss the judge over ruling the jury giving this man life, and the judge saying, "nope! this man get's the chair!" the man in question did not actually pull the trigger and fully cooperated with police when caught. not saying he was an innocent by far. yes, he did deserve prison time. a lot of it!
The vast majority of states that have a death penalty require a unanimous vote by a jury before the death penalty is applied. But three states—Florida, Alabama, and Delaware—do it differently. This is how Beauford White came to be executed against his jury’s wishes.
