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!lick here to edit the title
