2019: Trump continued on his horrifying course of attacking our institutions and fellow Americans.
@realDonaldTrump -- we refuse to let you slow down OUR progress:
116 months of job growth.
Strongest renter protections.
Toughest commonsense gun laws.
Ending the death penalty... https://t.co/O8hFLF34l8
@UndocuBlack @BLACKandPINKorg @ACLU_Mass @URGE_org @ColorOfChange @NIJC @UNITEDWEDREAM @SIECUS @PosWomensNet @BlackWomensRJ #DidYouKnow 1 in 25 people on death row is INNOCENT. This country's death penalty system is flawed and racist by design. It has no place in a just society.
This is one reason why we need a People's #JusticeGuarantee to abolish it once and for all. https://t.co/36thjY0FFU?
While many support the choice of the states and the execution of violent criminals, there is a shift in favor of abolishing capital punishment in recent years. This is particularly true for various conservative groups, who view it as murder and share concerns about costs and the number of innocents sent to death row. source
Since about 2016, Democrats have increasingly opposed the death penalty because it’s morally seen as murder, and new technology has proven various people on death row were unjustly convicted. The party favors improving rehabilitation measures and CSI technology. source
