    Well done Maryland

    Maryland will become the 18th state to ban the death penalty.

    A bill to outlaw capital punishment cleared the state House of Delegates on Friday and has already been approved by the Senate. Gov. Martin O’Malley, a Democrat, has said that he will sign it.
    O’Malley told reporters after the vote that the ban validates a “core belief that we share in the dignity of every human being.”
    “Overwhelming evidence tells us that the death penalty does not work,” he said earlier in the day on Twitter. He added: “Especially in tough times, if a public policy is expensive and does not work, then we should stop doing it.”
