Why I No Longer Support the Death Penalty

NPR.org:
Prosecutors declared a Texas man innocent Monday of a rape and robbery that put him in prison for 30 years, more than any other DNA exoneree in Texas.
***
Now 51, he has spent more time wrongly imprisoned than any DNA exoneree in Texas, which has freed 41 wrongly convicted inmates through DNA since 2001 — more than any other state.


And if I'm not mistaken, Texas also executes more people than any other state.
