Time and time again both the courts, American Bar Association and others have riled against Florida sentencing for the death penalty. What I did not realize is that Florida is the only state in the Union ro require 7 men and women to vote for the death penalty.

There is an interesting discussion of the death penalty in the below link as it appeared in the Gainesville Sun.
