In Brief: Death penalty repeal moves to third House review

in News

An effort to repeal Wyoming’s death penalty won approval in its second reading in Wyoming’s House Thursday, moving it one reading away from gaining full approval.

HB 145 would make life without the possibility of parole the harshest possible sentence that could be handed down in Wyoming. The bill was approved in its second reading by representatives, setting it up for a third and final reading in the House.

Supporters of the measure argue it would save the state money because of the legal costs associated with death penalty sentences. Opponents maintain the repeal would take a tool away from prosecutors.

If approved in the House, the bill would be sent to the Senate for its review.

    From: Dudley Sharp, pro death penalty expert, a former opponent

    Many of the anti death penalty claims are false or misleading.

    Anti death penalty “facts” are, often, repeated by the media and other anti death penalty folks, with little, if any, fact checking/vetting. 

    I hope you will take the time to review the following and that you find it helpful. It’s the pro death penalty side.

    After fact checking/vetting the death penalty debate for two years, I switched positions to supporting the sanction.

    I am at your service for any questions you may have.
