Murder Victims' Families Speak...check out the video

The ACLU Death Penalty Policy director of Northern California, Natasha Minsker, sent out an email today stating that she had asked their members to send letters to the editor of the Sacramento Bee about the paper's coverage of the first California Commission hearing on the death penalty. The article failed to mention any murder victims' family members who oppose the death penalty even though some of them testified at the hearing. Instead, the paper quoted a family member who is in favor of capital punishment who did not even testify.

A member of the ACLU group created a youtube video in response to Natasha's request, allowing for those murder victims' families who testified and who oppose the death penalty to have their voices heard in the public as well. The video is very powerful, and I hope you will check it out.
