On This Day In Michigan History

On May 4, 1846, the Michigan Legislature passed a measure banning capital punishment, making Michigan the first English-speaking government to stop executions. Since 1846, only one person has been given the death penalty in the state of Michigan -- Anthony CHEBATORIS was hanged for murder in 1938 in a federal case that occurred outside of Michigan jurisdiction.

The Governor ended up signing the bill into law May 18, 1846.

Maybe capital punishment needs to be revisited for pre-meditated murder committed by persons over the age of 21 and over. With the recent barrage of killings over the last decade maybe such a penalty would thwart such violence in the city of Detroit and throughout the Wolverine State.

I believe that the death penalty should not have to forbid. there is a category of criminals who should be punished for a crime. http://edit-ing.services/ help me
