In Posthumously Released Video, Former Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Calls for End to Death Penalty

In a video inter­view posthu­mous­ly released on the anniver­sary of the first mod­ern exon­er­a­tion of a Florida death-row pris­on­er, for­mer Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Gerald Kogan has called for abo­li­tion of the state’s death penal­ty. I believe that the death penal­ty should absolute­ly not be a pun­ish­ment deliv­ered by the State of Florida, or for that mat­ter, nei­ther any place in the United States or the world,” Kogan said.
