“Signing death warrants” has given Gov. Mike Beebe cause to question the death penalty to the point that he would legislate repealing them entirely, according to Arkansas News.
Rather than allow any more prisoners on death row to face the lethal injection, Beebe said he would sign legislate to repeal the death penalty and instead increase the number of resource officers.
These comments came today during a meeting of the Political Animals Club.
In his six years in the governor’s office, Beebe said he has signed seven death warrants, though no one has yet been put to death due to pending legislation.
