In 25 years from now, probably sooner, Americans will probably wonder why some states still allowed the death penalty back in 2014. That is the date of execution in Ohio for convicted murderer Gregory Lott. He had previously won two stays. This time the judge, reports AP, said that's that.
Planning to put someone to death seems, well, primitive. It also seems anti-Christian since it negates the possibility of redemption. Jesus Christ preached that human beings can change. Here in Connecticut the death penalty has been abolished. But that is not retroactive. The Cheshire convicted murderers in the famous Petit home invasion are on death row and will stay there.
