How law school changed a police officer's view on the death penalty
from By Terri L. Wilkin
From Nov. 13
: As a state trooper, I had preset beliefs about the criminal justice system and the individuals with whom I dealt daily. I was very conservative and looked at issues as black and white with no middle ground: If you did the crime, you needed to do the time. I did not have much sympathy for the individuals I brought to justice. I supported both the death penalty and maximum prison sentences — controversial issues that most state and federal legislatures and leaders continue to debate.
