Anti Death Penalty March Continues

It may be hot outside---but mother nature didn't stop a hand full of activists from continuing their march through North Carolina Friday---opposing the death penalty.

Sojourners for Abolition and Reconciliation, or SO-FAR, started their 300-mile march in Raleigh back on Sunday. Friday, the group stopped in Williamston, meeting and praying with local residents whose family members have been executed in North Carolina.

SO-FAR is calling for an end to the death penalty and promotes compassion for murder victim's families and support for the families of those on death row.

SO-FAR will be marching in Greenville this weekend and will end its journey back in Raleigh.

    I would love one of these treehuggers to justify their story to the Reidel family (the girl that killed at Applebee's). This is bull. The world was a must safer place when we executed people MORE regularly.

    Someone needs to get these people a job. It is evidentthat they have too much time on their hands.

    put ALL felons to death. this will immediately reduce 25% of the population by 85%. this results in dramatic lowering of ALL entitlements. which results in the working class keeping most of the money they earn, which results in living happily ever after. won't happen though, low lives translate into votes. so only the politicians get to live happily ever after.

    I am totally for the death penalty. If you commit the crime you should have to pay for it. An EYE for an EYE. People should face the death penalty for certain crimes. After a few examples are made maybe some of the people around here will wake up and realize they won't just get a slap on the wrist anymore. We should organize a march FOR THE DEATH PENALTY!!!

    If you are found guilty of murder then the family of the victim should get to decide your fate.
