N.J. Senate moves to ban death penalty

I’d like to see the death penalty abolished. I don’t believe anyone has the authority to take another’s life.

TRENTON, N.J. – New Jersey took a major step Monday toward becoming the first state to abolish the death penalty in more than 40 years, a change that is expect to become law within a month.

The state Senate approved a measure to replace the death sentence with life without parole, which would spare the life of a sex offender whose crimes sparked Megan’s Law. The bill has the support of the Democrat-controlled Assembly and the Democratic governor.
