Kill Georgia’s death penalty?

Capital punishment in Georgia has become too costly and inefficient and runs counter to conservative principles, writes an attorney and Republican Party leader. It is no longer worth the price, and the state should move to life sentences without parole as its toughest criminal penalty. But another expert argues we’d all be safer if the justice system applied the death sentence only to the worst of the worst — think Timothy McVeigh and Ted Bundy — and did not bog down in endless appeals. Fix the process, and make it fit the premeditated crime and evidence.
