Hosted by

Yesterday Democratic Governor Pat Quinn made Illinois the sixteenth state without capital punishment. He said there is no way to design a "perfect" system without the flaws that can lead to discrimination and wrongful convictions. There are 712 prisoners on California's death row, waiting for a federal judge to decide if the death penalty can be administered humanely. Mike Farrell, a self-described "actor, activist, writer and biker," leads the group Death Penalty Focus.
