I'm looking forward to hearing Dewey Bozella speak at the KVCC Foundation dinner next week. He's a boxer who was wrongly convicted and spent 26 years in prison.
You know there are people like him and then hear stories about the death penalty.
Today, CBS News reports that Connecticut becomes the 17th state to repeal the death penalty. What makes the story weird to me is that while they're saying that it's draconian and they're not going to do it anymore, it doesn't include the 11 who are already on death row.
So is it wrong or not? If you commit a heinous crime going forward you'll be sentenced to prison. If you already did it you're toast. Sure, they haven't executed anyone since 1960...but still.
Does anyone else find this odd?
