Issue quote: Joanna Barlieb, on Victims - Testimony before the New Jersey Death Penalty Study Commission. September 13, 2006
I can testify from experience that our current system is most unjust for the victims and their loved ones. I can only hope to save other families from the grief of the never-ending appellate process. I promote the substitution of the death penalty only with a life sentence that truly means life in prison with no possibility of parole.
