Maryland Death Penalty Dissent

| 1 Comment
I have extracted the minority report from the report of the Maryland Commission on Capital Punishment and uploaded it here. It is a well-written piece of work and certainly worth reading.

The full report is here. In that document, the minority report is oddly sandwiched in the middle of the references section. I informed the staff of this error and received a curt response that it is not an error.

The minority report's discussion of the Kirk Bloodworth case was particularly well done. I think it well balanced sensitivity towards Bloodworth's point of view and disagreement with his point of view.

The minority report also forcefully defended keeping the death penalty in a state that doesn't seem to have a huge appetite for it.
