4:35pm ET - After a string of botched executions and DNA-based exoneration's of men on death row, opponents of the death penalty have revived their hopes that judges and voters will finally see capital punishment for what it is: an intolerable affront to human dignity. But according to Daniel LaChance, an assistant Professor of History at Emory University, in his recent Op-Ed in the New York Times, this optimism is understandable, but misplaced.  He joins us today to discuss how anti-death penalty activist have been arguing the wrong points in their quest to convince Americans to end capital punishment in the US once and for all.
