More signs of the capital times
In recent posts here and here, I have spotlighted signs that the American culture of the death penalty may be in the midst of a significant transformation. Around the web and blogosphere, there are additional interesting signs of the capital times:
- How Appealing here has links to two newspaper articles discussing the challenges facing Governor Schwarzenegger as he considers whether to grant clemency to California death row inmate Stanley "Tokie" Williams.
- DPIC reports here on a speech in which "U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill recently announced that he is rethinking capital punishment because it is expensive, can be politically motivated, and risks innocent lives."
- CrimProf Blog reports here on a speech by Virginia CrimProf Steven Smith about the state and potential fate of the death penalty.
- Lyle Denniston at SCOTUSBlog here discusses the latest developments in the capital trial of Zacarias Moussaoui.
