Thinking About the Death Penalty
Published on September 22, 2011 by Sara Foss

The execution of Troy Davis made headlines throughout the country this week.

As a result, I've decided to re-post the New Yorker's 2009 article about the execution of Cameron Todd Willingham, whose case prompted similar soul-searching about capital punishment and the unfortunate reality that innocent people have been sent to death row. The article raises numerous questions about Willingham's case, and is well worth a look.
