Death row in Connecticut will go nowhere

The state Senate voted to abolish the death penalty, being one step away from becoming the 17th U.S. state without capital punishment. Connecticut executed only one person in the last 50 years, and also fears errors which DNA tests now allow to detect. So, from now on, those convicted in Connecticut have no other choice but to stay alive. Its things like these that make people suspicious about public services: not only they have done one single job in 50 years, but they are afraid of making mistakes as well, eventually turning these inefficiencies into the law. If the service were to be granted to a private company, they would quickly understand why the words 'executive' and 'executor' are so much alike.
