I dunno. It wouldn't have taken me a nanosecond to vote for the death penalty, but after reviewing the evidence and arguing with nitwits for four days, I might be emotionally drained and brought to tears.
Connecticut is the last New England state to have actually executed anyone, sometime around 2005. Those morons in New Hampshire are not eligible for the death penalty because they only killed a mother and mained her eleven year old daughter asleep in their beds and not an armed police officer. (New Hampshire has one guy on death row for killing a cop, but I bet I (currently 60) die before him.)
In the aftermath of these murders Governor Rell vetoed a bill that would have abolished the death penalty.
Those morons you speak of in NH are mostly MA transplants. That is what is wrong with NH. The NH of my youth would have executed all four of those kids and Savoy would have got life.
