    Maryland Repeals Death Penalty

    Yet another loss for the Republicans.

    • The death penalty is not a deterent as advertised. In fact, the opposite is true. A survey by the New York Times
      found that states without the death penalty have lower homicide rates than states with the death penalty.
      FBI data shows that all 14 states without capital punishment in 2008 had homicide rates at or below the national rate.
      Another study shows that 88% of the country's top criminologists do not believe the death penalty acts as a deterrent to homicide. The study was published earlier this week in Northwestern University School of Law's Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology. And here in texass, guilty or not guilty is irrelevant, families want, no, need retribution. And if the persion charged is a darkie or Messican, the sweeter the pleasure.
