Another reason not to empower the state

It’s not news anymore, really, when the state executes an innocent man. But it’s probably newsworthy when even the state of Texas is more or less forced to admit it did so.

The death penalty really shouldn’t be a party-line issue at this point. Procedural errors have so heinously jacked up the system that irrevocable punishments should be outside the realm of consideration.

As an addendum: I’ll add The Innocence Project to Brad’s ACLU on the list of “damn dirty hippies who nonetheless do vitally important work”.
