Considering The Death Penalty In Texas & The Usa says
Join Common Ground for Texans at our next meeting, for a discussion of the death penalty in America -- an issue that has received increased attention in recent months, with Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer saying, "it's time to revisit the issue" and President Obama also publicly questioning its application.

We'll consider whether it makes a difference that Texas judges are elected to office, whether racial biases in the justice system result in the death penalty being disproportionately used against people of color, and other questions. As always, we strive to discuss contentious issues with civility and respect for differing opinions.

We'll hear from Les Breeding of the Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty, and hopefully from an advocate for the death penalty (TBD). It should be a lively discussion -- we hope you can join us!
