The House has voted to kill the death penalty. (Wow! Right after I finished typing the word ‘penalty’ I got a robo-call. A Yale survey asking my opinion on the death penalty. Verrrry strange.) No matter what happens in the Senate, the Governor supports the death penalty, and will likely veto the bill.
On Wednesday, our 6pm news producer, Bob Connors, looked at me and said, “Do you realize this is the fourth anniversary of your witnessing an execution?” I hate missing anniversaries of any kind, but I had to admit it had skipped my mind.
For what it’s worth, I revisited the eerie evening Michael Ross drew his last breath in this post written after the Petit murders. Nothing’s really changed my line of thinking.
