Death Penalty Abolished In New Jersey!!!

The New Jersey Assembly has passed a bill to outlaw and abolish the death penalty in that State - a bill governor John Corzine has already promised to sign. Although New Jersey has not executed anyone since the early 1960's, this measure is an important step forward in ending the ultimate punishment. In recent years, numerous death row inmates have been exonerated, which has led to renewed and sustained efforts to end the death penalty. New Jersey has taken an important step forward in becoming the first state in more than forty years to end this economically wasteful, deeply flawed, and inherently wrong penalty.
