HB 1552 has been introduced to change the requirement of a unanimous death penalty. This bill was introduced after the kidnapping and brutal murder of Jordan and Whitney Land (a mother and two year old). One hold out on the jury kept the murderer from being executed. [Update: Make that two holdouts.] Here is a link to the bill: http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2005 ... hb1552.htm By the way, they were kidnapped from a park in Clayton County. Clayton County has the following ordinance: Sec. 66-20. Firearms. It shall be unlawful for any person to possess, carry or use any firearm in a park unless otherwise specifically authorized by state law. Here is a web site with more information about Whitney and Jordan Land: http://www.reconsearchandrescue.org/news.htm How anyone could look at that family photo and not impose the death penalty is difficult to fathom, but either way one lone holdout after a unanimous finding of guilty should not stand in the way of justice.
