I do not know why our state representatives want to waste their time debating capital punishment in the state of Maryland. The death penalty in this state is a big joke.
After reading the Baltimore Sun article "Officer shot at nearly same spot where colleague was killed in 2001" (March 22) I am even more convinced that there is no capital punishment here. The article states "the gunman fired a bullet into his leg, then stood over [Officer Michael J.] Cowdery's body and pumped another round into his head." What happened to justice?
