Act Locally: End the Death Penalty where it begins
Contact the Governor:
Please contact Florida Gov. Rick Scott and urge him to stop signing Death Warrants and order a unbiased, thorough, and complete investigation of Florida’s costly, wasteful, and mistake-ridden death penalty program.
The best estimate is that trying to enforce the death penalty costs Florida taxpayers at least $51 million per year over and above the cost of sentencing the same people to Life in Prison. The death penalty is much harder on murder victim’s families. There is no proof whatsoever that it deters violent crime. Florida has had far more innocent people exonerated and released from death row than any other state (27 thus far). It’s time to end executions and re-invest these huge sums of taxpayer dollars in well-proven, cost-effective methods to prevent violent crime, protect Florida families, and quickly provide for the needs of victim’s families and all those impacted by violent crime.
