The LuLac Edition #2839, February 17th, 2015


Governor Tom Wolf announced last week he was putting a moratorium on the death penalty in Pennsylvania. The definition of the word moratorium is this: a temporary prohibition of an activity. You would think that he is saying that all death penalties will be reduced to life. This Friday!
You would think that it would prohibit prosecutors from going for the maximum sentence. It won’t. The Governor is going to study this issue and see how this could be handled most efficiently and cost effectively.
Was the timing of this in NEPA problematic with Hugo Selenski getting convicted of two brutal murders and Eric Freine now trying to form a defense of the indefensible acts he committed?
Some say yes. But the fact is it is simply now a moratorium. The Death penalty is prohibited for right now. Let’s remember that before we leap to any conclusions just yet.
