Justice Delayed

The Pilgrim has long opposed the death penalty on moral grounds.

Here's a good article that provides a 'process oriented' reason to oppose the death penalty.

It is simply too easy to get it wrong, even in a justice system with as many safeguards as ours has.

The notion of wrongly executed people is simply too much burden for a moral nation to carry.

You wouldn't be the first that missed the joke. :)
