Just a thought.

Picked this up from the web site of our Arizona affiliate:

The Marquis de Lafayette, speaking to the French Chamber of Deputies in 1830, years after witnessing the excesses of the French Revolution, said, "I shall ask for the abolition of the punishment of death until I have the infallibility of human judgment demonstrated to me."

Since executions were allowed to resume in this country in 1976, 119 people have been freed from death row and released from prison after new evidence of their innocence emerged.
