Gov. Martin O’Malley doesn’t like the death penalty — I’m assuming it’s because he prefers to let convicts rot in jail (even years after their guilt has come into serious question).
At any rate, he’s busy lining up support for a repeal of the practice in the General Assembly, and pro-death penalty Senate President Mike Miller has promised him a vote on the measure, should he find enough yeas.
That’s good news for death penalty opponents, because lately the issue has been stalled in the Judicial Proceedings Committee, where a bare a majority supports capital punishment.
I say repeal it. No death penalty could be some kind of consolation for all those youths we try as adults.
