Texas in 2004 executed an innocent man for murder of his three children because they died in a fire that he was accussed of setting. It has been discovered that the fire was not an arson, so it is expected that Texas will have to eventually acknowledge they convicted and executed an innocent man as a reward for losing his three children in an accidental fire. This is why the death penalty should be abolished. It is barbaric in a civilized world.
