A small step in the right direction

New Jersey is moving towards repeal of the death penalty, to be replaced by a maximum criminal penalty of life in prison without parole. Works for me.

Any move to inhibit killing people in the name of the state is worthwhile. I have no illusions that many believe agents of the state would only kill for a justifiable reason, but at least this would put a legal roadblock on one life-taking process.
