In North Carolina we have more than 970 resolutions to repeal the death penalty! Most are from locally owned businesses in all 100 counties. We are very grateful to these local business owners who are willing to speak out for their communities and their state.
The death penalty in Wisconsin: Gone now 160 years
July 9, 2013
By Alexander “Sandie” Pendleton
July 10 is the 160th anniversary of the abolition of the death penalty in Wisconsin. This sets Wisconsin apart from other jurisdictions. Nationally, Wisconsin law has been completely without the death penalty longer than the laws of any other state. Wisconsin also has been without the death penalty longer than any European country (even longer than the Vatican).
