Leonard Pitts. Jr., wrote an opinion piece on the death penalty that was published in the Miami Herald on June 13, 2015. 

Pitts’ op-ed has been circulating around the web in circles where capital punishment is a concern.  It’s also been read by those who are watching Washington, D.C. to learn what the Supreme Court will do with the death penalty cases pending before it. 

If you haven’t seen it, maybe you will find it worth your time to read.  Pitts speaks to the Supreme Court, and to Justice Scalia directly, regarding the High Court’s stance on the death penalty :

"What do you think of the Death Penalty now, Justice Scalia?"
