The death penalty is an archaic practice that does not improve public safety.
I call on you to address the root causes of crime, increase services and support to all victims of crime and affirm the principle that every human being is capable of change, rehabilitation and even redemption.
Death is not justice. It's time to abolish the death penalty.
