A couple of articles we're glad to see this week:
This story from BU (Boston University) today, "A Father's Grief and Change of Heart," announcing MVFHR member Bob Curley's talk at the university this evening. From that piece: “After Jeff was killed, it seemed like I was supposed to be for the death penalty,” Curley says. “It took time for me to step back and realize the problems with it.”
This story from the North Carolina News Observer, "A Better Law for North Carolina," challenging the wisdom and efficacy of sentencing people with severe mental illness to death. From that piece: "Polling shows that 75 percent of Americans oppose executing people with serious mental illness."
