    Repeal the Death Penalty

    Yesterday, Gov. Inslee, Attorney General Ferguson, former Attorney General McKenna, and several Democrat and Republican legislators announced they would introduce legislation repealing Washington's death penalty statute. I hope the legislature passes this measure; it's long overdue.

    I wrote about this issue in January, 2015. Here are my reasons why we should stop believing in the false promise of the death penalty.
