New Hampshire doesn't need the death penalty

Feb. 10 — To the Editor:

A system run by human beings can never be perfect. If we are honest with ourselves, we will admit that.

I was moved by Juan Melendez's words when he said he was not saved by the system but in spite of the system. New Hampshire can live without the death penalty. In reality, we have done so for the last 70 years despite having it on the books.

Let's get rid of it for good. Lock the murderers up and spend the appeal money on helping the victims' families deal with their losses.
