Episode 11: Crime of Punishment Part II

Herald editor Jeff Gerritt joins the show to discuss Saturday's three-part editorial "CRIME OF PUNISHMENT: In the shadow of death," which examines why the death penalty should be abolished. Special guests Sylvester and Vicki Schieber join the show to explain why they opposed the death penalty for their daughter Shannon's murder. In an abstract way, the Schieber's had always opposed the death penalty because it went against their faith-based lifestyle and moral beliefs. Since Shannon's death, the Schieber's have become advocates of abolishing the death penalty in Pennsylvania and nationwide.
