Texas, A State Without Pity

Texas is still the execution capital of the U.S., leading the other 49 states by 62%. There have been other articles about this shame, but this morning's editorial in the NY Times sums it up beautifully. DNA testing has proven so many sentencing errors in this country that New Jersey recently banned all executions. Other states are considering this. We need to take a second look at the death penalty. It's a 'number one' record that should not make Texans proud.
