Robin Lovitt almost became the 1000th person to be executed in the US since 1976. Read about it here:
It blows my mind that this person, who received an unfair trial, was a day away from dying when a politician finally intervened. It makes you think about all those other times when nobody does intervene.
The death penalty is one of the issues that we’ve discussed in my PoliSci class, and this is the only issue that I am completely decided on. I think the death penalty is wrong, but I also know that I’m ignorant of many of the related issues. The Amnesty International website is a good place to start to learn more.
What do you think?
