Ohio's death penalty is plagued with serious problems. The American Bar Association found racial and geographic disparities, inadequate defense and not enough access to evidence. A 30-month study by a team of lawyers and judges found dozens of flaws in Ohio's legal process. The bar association wants better line up procedures, evidence preserved for appeals, and a better understanding of defendants who are mentally ill. The bar recommends that Ohio temporarily halt executions to permit a thorough review of the state's death penalty system. What do you say? Join us tomorrow at nine for our discussion of the death penalty on the Sound of Ideas.
