Virginia set to become 23rd state to abolish death penalty

Virginia will likely become the 23rd state to abolish the death penalty. The development comes after the state House of Delegates passed legislation that would end capital punishment in the Commonwealth a day after the state Senate passed a similar bill. The governor has also said that he plans on signing the bill. Friday’s vote on the bill in the House of Delegates was 57-41.

Can they abolish the death penalty for babies please? I won't cheer for measures like this until babies are afforded the same rights that convicted murderers are privileged to enjoy.

Law enforcement and the military kill people. The logic in removing the death penalty makes no sense otherwise

Through this logic, law enforcement and the military shouldn’t be killing people

I do agree with the death penalty not as a deterrent but as an effect tool to force a plea deal of life imprisonment with out any chance of parole for the accused. Doing this would cancel out any appeals and victims families would not have to relive the tragic events over and over. Just as long as the convict is never released and the sentence of life without parole is upheld.😅🇨🇦

When about 1 out of 25 inmates on death row are probably innocent, this is absolutely necessary. https://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/letters/2019/03/25/approximately-percent-death-row-inmates-are-innocent/djgIYVENbZHMiGMGoXIKIK/story.html?outputType=amp
