Colorado abolishes death penalty and commutes sentences of death row inmates

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) has signed a legislation into law Monday banning the death penalty, making Colorado the 22nd state to do so. The measure bans capital punishment as an option for defendants convicted of Class 1 felonies in the state on or after July 1. He also commuted the sentences of three men on death row, who will now serve life in prison without the possibility of parole.

They remove the death penalty so there can be more murders, rapes and stabbings in prison. Like dogs in cages the longer they stay in the crazier they get and are more willing to attack and or kill the prison guards.
