Should Florida end the death penalty? That's the question addressed on this segment of WMNF's Radioactivity with Rob Lorei.
Peter Mills, an assistant public defender and member of the Florida Public Defender Association, was the guest during this segment. He discussed the cost of capital murder appeals and how the appeals are far more expensive than keeping someone in prison for life with no possibility of parole. He also looked at the unequal ways the death penalty is applied in Florida and the exonerations that have come from the Florida system.
