Important Short Quote on DP & Value of Human Life

Over reliance on the death penalty diminishes the value of human life. A brutalization effect kicks in that research shows increases incidents of violence after an execution. Murder rates are higher in states with the death penalty. Racial bias taints the pursuit of justice. Tax dollars are wasted on a flawed system and not used to help victims of crime or to make our community safer. It’s time for a change.
