    I have worn many titles and have experienced many careers and yet the death penalty is my nemesis.

    Today, the words below gained more meaning as the GA leg passed the Indigent Defense Act which for many of my colleagues is long overdue.

    YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AN ATTY. IF YOU CANNOT AFFORD AN ATTORNEY, ONE WILL BE APPOINTED TO YOU.

    My questions for you are (for those who are interested)

    1. WHAT CASE 40 YRS AGO LEAD TO THIS STATEMENT?
    2. WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT FOR POOR DEFENDANTS TO HAVE ACCESS TO AN ATTY.
    3. What is your honest opinion of the death penalty?
    4 Do you support it ? why? and if not why not?
