Voices from Kentucky Victims

As a state Supreme Court ruling has halted executions in Kentucky (for a summary, see, for example, this New York Times article), it's a good moment to listen to some of the voices of Kentucky victims' family members explaining their opposition to the death penalty. The Kentucky Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty has posted some powerful videos -- they don't take long to view -- from victims' family members.

Here's one from Ben Griffith, whose brother was murdered, one from Ruth Lowe, who also lost her brother to murder, and one from Eugene Thomas, whose father was murdered.
