Virginia will ban capital punishment. An act praised by USA Today and other Leftwing media - because "journalists" believe anti-capital punishment propaganda that claims the death penalty is cruel and, of course, racist.
So too does Biden's choice for Attorney General, who were it not for Sen. McConnell, would be on the Supreme Court today where his Leftwing orthodoxy would severely damage American society, in general, and the criminal justice system in particular. When questioned about capital punishment during his confirmation hearing, Merrick Garland, Leftist ideologue that he is, said, "I am very concerned about the large number of exonerations that have occurred through DNA evidence and otherwise, not only in death penalty convictions but also in other convictions. I think a terrible thing occurs when somebody is convicted for a crime they did not commit and the most terrible thing happens when someone is executed for a crime they did not commit." It is safe to say that Garland and people like Garland are not the only people who think it is terrible for someone who has been convicted of a crime they did not commit and would think it very terrible for someone to be executed for a crime they did not commit. Any sentient human being feels this way. Garland is not unique. His statement belies his sanctimony in that he believes what others think is callous.

When the left finally goes full Stalin, they’ll have no problem with the ‘supreme measure of social defense’.
Get a job.
“So too does Biden’s choice for Attorney General, who were it not for Sen. McConnell, would be on the Supreme Court today where his Leftwing orthodoxy would severely damage American society, in general, and the criminal justice system in particular.”
See this part? “would be on the Supreme Court today where his Leftwing orthodoxy would severely damage American society”
Does the author tend to imply that what the Supreme Court has been lately, with Roberts and ACB, is not Leftwing orthodoxy and severely damaging American society? Yeah, thanks a whole bunch, China Mitch McConnell.
Paging Kamala Harris. Paging Kamala Harris.
As long as it isn’t the blood of convicted murderers, the Left doesn’t care.
An example of insanity!
Twenty-four years to the day, Cayce Williams is scheduled to be released from the state prison in Dixon for the crime after serving half of his 48-year sentence.
“The thought of him being out and being able to potentially do something like this again is, you know, very scary,” Morgan said.
Morgan was at work when her daughter was killed. The coroner determined she died from multiple injuries to the head and torso as well as internal bleeding, and that she had been sexually assaulted.
The original charges against Williams made him eligible for the death penalty, but nine years after being charged he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 48 years. Under laws at the time, he is eligible for release after serving 50% of his sentence, 24 years.
Like they care.
