County-By-County Death Penalty Expenditures
Jonathan Simon, over at Governing Through Crime, directed my attention to this excellent feature of the ACLU death penalty report - an interactive map that allows you to track down how much resources have been spent on the death penalty in each county. San Francisco County, I'm proud and happy to report, has not sent anyone to death row since 2,000. But other counties certainly have. I encourage you to play with the map a bit and learn more about the variation - re our discussion of killer counties earlier this month.
