Comments: As someone who is for the death penalty, this book was eye opening. She didn’t completely change my mind. But, the number of innocent people who are on death row and the reasons they are there make me step back and say, revamp. However, you can’t revamp when dealing with humans. There are always going to be bad cops, cocky lawyers, and prejudiced judges. Luckily, there are even more good cops, dedicated lawyers, and fair judges. Book was well-written, though, at times, it got both a little jargonized and a little preachy.
