The following list of death row exonerations is provided courtesy of www.deathpenaltyinfo.org. Surely seeing this list of 146 KNOWN people who got sentenced to death between 1976 and 2014, served some time on death row and then were exonerated because they didn't do the crime, is a testament to the fact that the death penalty is disfunctional and must be abolished.
As the table indicates, the longest wrongfully convicted death row inmates have spent on death row is 30 years! Imagine spending 30 years on death row (solitary confinement 23/7, no exceptions) living in constant fear that your death warrant may have been signed and you may have just a few months to live before they stick that needle in your arm? That is a scary thought! Expecially of you're completely innocent of the crime!
