‘Stop Capital Punishment’ Florida Bishops tell Governor Rick Scott



Following the execution of Oscar Ray Bolin, Jr. slated for January 7 2016, the Catholic Bishops of Florida have urged the state’s Governor, Hon. Rick Scott to abolish capital punishment in the state. 

According to a letter signed by Michael Sheedy, the director of the Florida bishops’ conference, the bishops affirmed that the use of the death penalty has been “inconsistent, arbitrary, and too often applied in error.” Noting that Florida was one of only six US states to execute criminals last year, he urged a stay on the pending execution of Oscar Ray Bolin, Jr.
