Alabama Newspaper Decides to Oppose the Death Penalty
The editorial board of the Birmingham News, the largest newspaper in the largest city in the very conservative state of Alabama, has decided they can no longer support capital punishment.
"After decades of supporting the death penalty, the editorial board no longer can do so. Today and over the next five days, we will explain our change of mind and heart..... Why? Because we have come to believe Alabama's capital punishment system is broken. And because, first and foremost, this newspaper's editorial board is committed to a culture of life.
