Alabama Death Penalty

Posted by Steve Eversole | Aug 28, 2007 | 0 Comments

The Alabama Death Penalty should be abolished.  With all the overwhelming statistics out there of the unfairness of the process, DNA samples exonerating defendants who have been in jail for years, innocent men having been executed, the simple fact that African Americans are much more likely to be sentenced to death, etc. etc. I did not want to wax philosophical about the death penalty here, that will come in due time my friends.

I merely want to point several excellent organizations who do good work.  The Equal Justice Initiative of Alabama is a private, nonprofit organization that provides legal representation to indigent defendants and prisoners who have been denied fair and just treatment in the legal system.  The Innocence Project is a national litigation and public policy dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted people through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent further injustice.  Check them both out.  They are fighting the good fight and deserve our support.
