Will Montana Become 18th State to Abolish the Death Penalty?

According to KRTV the bill got some support in committee:

The Senate Judiciary committee on Thursday passed a Democrat-sponsored bill which would abolish the death penalty in Montana.

The committee saw an interesting turn of events when Republican State Senators Greg Hinkle (Thompson Falls) and Jim Shockley (Victor) voted in favor of the bill.

“This subject is far bigger than…this committee,” Hinkle said. “Mr. Chairman, I am going to vote to get this bill out of committee and the reason why is because I believe it needs to get on the Senate floor and allow the people of Montana to have a greater discussion on it,” he continued.

Hinkle says he doesn’t know yet if he will support the bill on the Senate floor.

The bill passed in a 7 to 5 vote.

My opinion about the death penalty isn’t especially important here – but we’d love to hear what you think!  Would you like to see it abolished?  Why or why not?
