Death penalty news and notes
Here are a few death penalty headlines and stories from a variety of states that caught my eye this morning:
- From Maryland here, "Faith leaders urge state to repeal death penalty"
- From North Carolina here, "Mentally Ill Would Avoid Death Penalty"
- From Tennessee here, "Copeland gets plea bargain in killing; former death row inmate now looking at 3 years"
- From Texas here, "First execution of 2009 carried out; five more on tap for January"

Let's hope that not just Texas returns to executing murderers. Many victims' families have waited long enough for final justice to come. Let's have it.
