Florida to Murder More Innocent People

“On April 20th, Ron DeSantis, Florida governor and presidential hopeful, signed a law allowing Florida juries to recommend the death penalty with only an 8-to-4 vote. Previously, Florida required a unanimous vote in death penalty cases. Under the new law, Florida will have a lower threshold for imposing the death penalty than any other state. The change was prompted by the sentencing of the Parkland shooter to life in prison without parole for the murder of 17 people, a case that makes it all too easy to ignore what this law will mean in practice: Florida will murder more innocent people.” (05/11/23)
