RIP Stanley "Tookie" Williams

The death penalty system in this country is broken. It lacks basic safeguards to prevent arbitrary, erroneous and discriminatory application of the death penalty. Since 1973, 122 people in 25 states have been released from death row with evidence of their innocence. It's time for a moratorium.
