A Moratorium on Executions is the Best Strategy to Protect Innocent People from the Texas Death Penalty

The Dallas Morning News renews its call for a moratorium on executions in an editorial today. The editorial comes on the same day that Texas Monthly has endorsed a moratorium.

Seeking a moratorium is the best strategy for stopping executions in Texas and saving innocent people currently on death row from possible wrongful execution.

From the Dallas Morning News:

a responsible, comprehensive debate needs to take place among the state's best legal minds, lawmakers and thought leaders. This newspaper has consistently called on the Legislature to impose a moratorium on executions to allow for that rigorous analysis. The call for a moratorium has been joined by Texas Monthly magazine, whose senior editor Pamela Colloff has documented the detestable fraud in the Graves case.
Texans should stand mute no longer on this madness.
