These three very scary words--DEATH-ROW EXONERATION-- are enough to make you upchuck. 

 

Consider what it must be like if you have been convicted for a crime you did not commit and are now being sentenced to death.

 

This Op-Ed is concerned with the relationship between the growing number of exonerations and the death penalty.

 

In 1972 the US Supreme Court in a vote of 5 to 4 invalidated all death-penalty laws in the country, saying they were being arbitrarily applied.  Justice Potter Stewart concurred, saying: the Constitution could not "permit this unique penalty to be so wantonly and freakishly imposed."
