The death penalty has become time consuming, cost-inefficient and has had no clear effect on the deterrence of crime. In a time of economic recovery, the call to abolish a wasteful punishment is way past due.
It is time we stop allowing the government to put our budget in the death penalty and start putting it into education and health care.
We, the people of Florida, call on Governor Rick Scott to abolish the death penalty.
