The latest entry in Civitas’ 20 for 2010 is up. It deals with the Death Penalty in North Carolina.
Most North Carolina citizens do not realize that NC has had a moratorium on the death penalty in place for almost 4 years. Not only do we have 158 murederers sitting on death row, we have complicated the imposition of any new death sentence with a misnamed bill titled the “Racial Justice Act“.
By not acting to quickly restore the legislature is insuring that more innocent victims will die. The legislature needs to reinstate the death penalty immediately.
