The vote repealing the death penalty is another example of elected politicians going against the people's will. Polling shows by a 62 percent to 31 percent margin voters feel repeal is a bad idea.
When this bill becomes law, the 11 men currently on Connecticut's death row will supposedly be grandfathered in and could face execution. However, I seriously doubt that these animals will ever be executed, as some progressive governor will likely commute their sentences. Meanwhile, we the taxpayers will be saddled with a hefty annual bill to keep these killers isolated from the general population.
Ironically, the same group of politicians that are ready to protect the lives of murderers are willing to ignore the thousands of innocent babies that are aborted each year in Connecticut.
