Death-penalty ills

The NAACP State Conference applauds Gov. John Hickenlooper for telling the world he now opposes use of the Colorado death penalty. The governor's journey is a kind of template for the way abolitionists hope more in our state will come to feel about the death penalty and its egregious ills.

Gov. Hickenlooper courageously set out to educate himself. He reviewed reports, documenting the staggering cost alone: 10 to 15 times more than pursuing life without the possibility of parole. And he talked to surviving family members of murder victims to get their take on justice. He was told that forgiveness is critical to the journey, but it takes time. Executions, he heard, deny victims' family members the time they need.
