I hate the death row. I hate capital punishment.

The state makes so many mistakes in so many parts of its operations, that I'm sure that it has made some 'fatal mistakes' in the past. The best way to make those mistakes non fatal is to not kill anyone in prison.

That's my observation. Go read David's article if you care about life, sports, literacy and the final ticks on the clock.
