TX Death Penalty Study

Wade Goodwyn reports on a study by a Texas advocacy group that says the state's death penalty system needs a drastic overhaul. The report, by the Texas Defender Service, says the system is full of dishonest prosecutors, incompetent defense attorneys, a weak appeals process, and racial bias in sentencing and jury selection.
