Kansas Court Reconsiders the Death Penalty

In a case out of Wichita, Kansas, the ACLU is challenging the death penalty for a person convicted of a double murder, Frank Morris reports for NPR. The ACLU argues that the practice has been used discriminatively against Black people. In addition, they say that jury selection in capital punishment cases is discriminatory since jurors against the practice go unselected. Kansas has not killed anyone with capital punishment since 1965. Arguments in the case began on Sunday.
