Compromise on Death Penalty [LINK]

One more for Gov. Patrick:

Since there seems to be a fairly consistent 50/50 split for and against capital punishment, and since there is little definitive research on its deterrent effect (especially concerning sudden "crimes of passion"), I propose a compromise. Make murders committed on even days punishable by death, and those committed on odd days punishable by life imprisonment, or whatever the current sentence is.

As yet, no comments:
