Hon. Craig Watkins: Don't Seek the Death Penalty Anymore!

      Irving, TX

The death penalty, besides being deeply flawed and racist, is not a deterrent. It is exorbitantly costly and morally bankrupt. One cannot teach killing is wrong by killing people. A small child understands that.

Sooner or later the death penalty will be abolished in Texas. It is not a matter of "if " but a question of "when". Please lead Texas to join 18 American states and 140 countries worldwide that have abolished the death penalty!

To:
Honorable Craig Watkins., District Attorney, Dallas, Texas
Hon. Craig Watkins, please don't seek the death penalty anymore!
When given the choice between "life without possibility of parole" and the death sentence, a large majority of Texans support the former.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      We have killed people who were innocent! All in the name of "Justice?" No more death penalty / state sanctioned murder!

      There is nothing to be gained by unnecessarily killing another human being. It is not a deterrent. It is more costly than keeping someone in prison. Most important, I have never heard of a victim's family having "been made whole" after an execution, I would point out that when NJ abolished the death penalty that victims rights groups supported abolishment.

      Life is sacred, and the risk of killing an innocent person is far too great.

      violence breed violence which is proven through states that have the DP and states that do not. Besides no one has the right to choice whether any one has the right to live or die.
