Editorial by Donald Connery

I encourage you all to read this essay. Mr. Connery is writing a book on miscarriages of justice. He has followed case after case of wrongful conviction and has studied the application of the death penalty throughout the United States. A Connecticut resident, he has an interesting perspective on resuming executions in Connecticut. Mr. Connery has been a journalist most of his life, a career he began after serving in the Philippines during World War II.

If you have questions about Connecticut's execution of Michael Ross (or the death penalty in general), please do read this essay.

"We are all, of course, on God's death row, saints and sinners alike. Losing a life is personal, especially if it is our own. Taking a life is personal, especially if we freely choose to do so."

You Me and the Death Penalty
