Weekend Death Penalty Stories

There are a number of interesting stories on the death penalty in newspapers today.

From Oregon, Alan Gustafson has this story in the Statesman Journal on the execution of "volunteer" Gary Haugen, scheduled for December 6 and the controversy in that state.

From Pennsylvania, Mike Scolforo of AP has this story, headlined "Justices turn spotlight on lawyers' role in Pa.'s undeclared moratorium on the death penalty."  Three cheers for Chief Justice Castille, who is finally focusing on the intentional obstruction campaign of the capital defense bar.

From Ohio, the Newark Advocate has this op-ed by Byran Dahlke, headlined, "Civilized society demands the death penalty."
