COMING TO JACKSONVILLE
CONSERVATIVES CONCERNED ABOUT THE DEATH PENALTY
Jacksonville-based liberty organization will address the issue September 21st
September 9, 2015 – Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty (CCATDP), a national network of conservatives and libertarians questioning the alignment of capital punishment with their principles, will be featured at the upcoming monthly meeting of Jacksonville Liberty on the Rocks.
“The financial burden, the risk of taking an innocent life, and the continuity of the Pro-Life ideology is something that can no longer be overlooked, or cast aside,” said Travis Wilson of Jacksonville Liberty On the Rocks. “It is far past time to end the barbaric practice of capital punishment.”
CCATDP national coordinator Marc Hyden, a representative of the NRA in Florida prior to taking this position, will be making a presentation to the group about why conservatives in Florida and across the nation are re-thinking the death penalty.
“Liberty-minded people want to limit the power of government, including the death penalty, which is a broken and wasteful government program that has the real potential of killing innocent Americans,” said Hyden.
To date, more than 150 individuals have been released from death rows across America because they were wrongfully convicted and Florida leads the nation in exonerations with 25.
The event will begin Monday evening September 21st at 6:30pm in Goozlepipe & Guttyworks Gastropub, 914 King Street in Jacksonville.
