Good for New Jersey

I read here where New Jersey is on the verge of repealing the death penalty as a form of criminal punishment.

Good news? No. It is Great News. I am totally and unconditionally against, I repeat, I am totally and unconditionally against the government being in the business of killing any of its citizens.

And it is one of the several reasons I do not go to Texas.

And, as far as I am concerned, executing a convicted murderer does not bring back the victim. Closure? Not in my book.

So, good on ya New Jersey. You are good for the human race.

I am sorry to say that I do not live in New Jersey. But, my Dad was born in Orange, New Jersey.
