Time to Lose the Death Penalty
UPDATE: I was remiss not to mention the case of Arthur Bomar in today's column. He's been on death row for 12 years. Some 70 appeals later, Aimee Willard's killer is costing the commonwealth and Delaware County millions. Yes, he deserves to die for his crimes. But he won't anytime soon. Another reason to either change the law or commute all these death penalty sentences.
