Goodbye Death

I did this piece today, based on an article from the NY Times about how many states are thinking of abolishing the death penalty in order to save money. Apparently, it costs a lot more to prosecute a death penalty case and the amount of appeals is so high that the verdicts usually get overturned anyway. Because of this, it makes more fiscal sense to keep the criminals in prison for life.
