Death Penalty Opponents Make Case On Radio Show
Two representatives of organizations working to repeal Wyoming's death penalty made their case on KGAB radio in Cheyenne on Monday morning.
Sabrina King of the Wyoming ACLU and Marguerite Harman of the League of Women Voters of Wyoming told radio host Glenn Woods the death penalty is expensive, unethical, and presents the risk of killing innocent people.
The two organizations are part of a coalition of groups that are working to eliminate Wyoming's death penalty law. A bill to do that, sponsored by Rep. Jared Olsen [R-Laramie County], made it through the Wyoming House in the 2019 session but failed to win Senate approval.
