After the state-sanctioned murder of Troy Davis, it’s clear that when states are given the freedom to maintain the death penalty they do not use it with the great care and discernment it should be afforded. We cannot be a country that executes potentially innocent people. We cannot execute people when there is no physical evidence to support their guilt. Because states are willing to execute people under questionable circumstances, we MUST abolish the death penalty as a country.
