The Dallas Morning News renews its call for a moratorium on executions in an editorial today. The editorial comes on the same day that Texas Monthly has endorsed a moratorium.
Seeking a moratorium is the best strategy for stopping executions in Texas and saving innocent people currently on death row from possible wrongful execution.
From the Dallas Morning News:
a responsible, comprehensive debate needs to take place among the state’s best legal minds, lawmakers and thought leaders. This newspaper has consistently called on the Legislature to impose a moratorium on executions to allow for that rigorous analysis. The call for a moratorium has been joined by Texas Monthly magazine, whose senior editor Pamela Colloff has documented the detestable fraud in the Graves case.Texans should stand mute no longer on this madness.
