Statement of ACLU-CO Deputy Director on Denver DA’S Decision to Seek Death Penalty in Fero’s Case

Statement of ACLU of Colorado Deputy Director Stephen Meswarb on Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey’s decision to seek the death penalty in the Fero’s bar case

“The ACLU of Colorado is disappointed by Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey’s decision to pursue the death penalty in this case. The death penalty is immoral, unjust, and expensive, and every execution and death warrant perpetuates an arbitrary system that can and does make irreversible mistakes.

“When prosecutors choose to pursue death, as Morrissey did today, they validate a deeply flawed system and disregard the substantive costs, both in terms of morality and actual taxpayer dollars, that accompany their decision.”
