Atlanta Journal Constitution: Death penalty unfair, must be abolished

Atlanta Journal-Constitution has joined Chicago Tribune and Dallas Morning News by calling for abolition of the death penalty.
Georgia's death penalty law can and should be updated to try to wring as much unfairness as possible from the system, but reform can never eradicate the possibility of error, and it can never remove human bias and prejudice from the process. Imposing the absolute penalty requires absolute justice, and in the absence of that, the death penalty ought to be abolished.
