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!
When given the choice between "life without possibility of parole" and the death sentence, a large majority of Texans support the former.
