Is apparently not enough state-sanctioned killing:
Forty-six years after its abolition a House committee sought public opinion Tuesday on whether West Virginia should reinstate the death penalty.
Opponents outnumbered supporters during the 70-minute hearing on legislation introduced by Delegate John Overington, R-Berkeley, a longtime proponent of the death penalty.
Supporters included Berkeley County resident Paula Rolls who said she had never considered the death penalty until her friend Kathy Sharp was murdered in 2009.
Now, West Virginia is “in desperate need of the death penalty,” she said.
What is going on in Berkeley County? This is also where that one Senator advocated seceding to Virginia.
