Researching a Good Place for Murder

And where would that be?

Illinois.

Why?

Because it just abolished the death penalty!

This story seems like it comes out of central casting for those of us who know that the death penalty deters murder, but I didn't get it from central casting.  I got it from Doug Berman at Sentencing Law and Policy.  Doug is a liberal on most sentencing issues, but has an independent turn of mind, and three cheers to him for putting up this gem of a story.
