I almost never get political, or even touch on heated topics, but I'm interested to see where you guys stand on this one...
There hasn't been a federal execution since the Bush Administration in 2003. According to NPR.org, there is a growing national trend to sentence convicted criminals to death less often, and of course, there is heated debate on both sides of the issue. Some have put the topic on hold for the high costs, some for 8th Amendment concerns, and still others because there is a national shortage of the drug necessary to complete the process.
I found "The Quiet Revolution" incredibly interesting and an example of America's [slowly] shifting views on social and political topics. What are your thoughts, either in general or after reading this article?
