seven states may be abolishing the death penalty

maybe they are considering just because of the money, but i am glad they are considering it. i get so tired of the same argument that 'we need the death penalty to deter murder' or 'if we abolish the death penalty, homicides will increase.'

both are false. and there is plenty of evidence for it. i would have much more respect for death penalty proponents if they would just admit they want to punish the offender.
