Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber suspends capital punishment for duration his term.

Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber: no more executions on my watch.

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber: “Let me be clear, I had no sympathy or compassion for the criminals or for anyone who commits the most heinous of acts – taking the life of another person.”

Gov. Kitzhaber, a former E.R. doctor believes the system is unfair and points out that the two most recent executions were convicts who wanted their executions to proceed.

Kitzhaber:  “Both were during my first administration as Governor, one in 1996 and the other in 1997. I allowed those sentences to be carried out despite my personal opposition to the death penalty. . .
They were the most agonizing and difficult decisions I have made as Governor and I have revisited and questioned them over and over again during the past 14 years.”
