MD Death Penalty Debate Continues: 
Alex Jackson of the Capital Gazette reports that the Maryland Senate gave preliminary approval Tuesday to Senate Bill 276, proposed by Gov. Martin O'Malley. If enacted into law, the bill will make MD the 18th state to abolish capital punishment.

Voting is expected to take place on Wednesday. More in this News Scan.

DNA Links Transient to Three CA Killings:  Richard Winton of the Los Angeles Times reports that Samuel Little, 72, pleaded not guilty Monday to three California murders from the 1980s. Little was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Kentucky in September on an unrelated warrant. DNA linked him to the fatal strangling and sexual assaults of Carol Alford, 41, Audrey Nelson, 35, and Guadalupe Apadaca, 46 in Los Angeles. The women were murdered after Little moved to California following charges for two murders and two attempted murders in Florida and Mississippi, for which he was never convicted. In California Little served two years in prison for the separate assaults and false imprisonments of two San Diego women. He was on parole when the Los Angeles area murders are believed to have occurred.

TRUTH = Anti death penalty failure, Dudley Sharp

Fact checking WOULD be the undoing of all anti death penalty efforts, IF the media participated.

As the media pushes these anti death penalty frauds, as opposed to uncovering them, it's a very tough road for the TRUTH.

The Maryland cost study, as many others, is bogus.

Please FACT CHECK

2) INNOCENCE

There is no credible case, ever, of an innocent executed in Maryland.

Nationally, possibly, 0.4% of those sentenced to death have been actually innocent, all of those have been released upon appeal.

Based upon those two issues, is there a more accurate sanction in the world? Maybe not.

3) THE DEATH PENALTY: A GREATER PROTECTOR OF THE INNOCENT

4) GOVERNANCE

Had Gov. O'Malley et al road blocked abortions or welfare, as they have executions, what would the media be doing?

No one has any doubt.
