Executing the Death Penalty

Kudos to the Senate (and to the governor) for passing the bill to eliminate capital punishment in Maryland.  Now let’s see it get through the House of Delegates.

Only people with extraordinary faith in the wisdom and competence of governmental administration can believe that the state can carry out executions justly, fairly, and unerringly.   They also need to be blind to the evidence of horrible miscarriages of justice, and innocent lives wasted or taken.

Fortunately, I’m not tainted by such blind faith in the wisdom of the state.
