New Mexico Bans Death Penalty

SANTA FE, N.M. – Gov. Bill Richardson signed legislation Wednesday repealing New Mexico’s death penalty, making it the second state to ban executions since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976.

Richardson, a Democrat who formerly supported capital punishment, said signing the bill was the “most difficult decision” of his political life but that “the potential for … execution of an innocent person stands as anathema to our very sensibilities as human beings.”</em>

Indeed it does.
