Kim Kardashian Tweets Support for Ending the Death Penalty

Kim Kardashian is speaking out to voice her support for ending the death penalty.

The 38-year-old reality star has revealed that she is working with California’s Governor Newsom on eliminating the death penalty in the state.

“For the last year, I have immersed myself in learning about the criminal justice system. I visited prisons, met with formerly incarcerated people, and helped with cases of individual injustice – including two death penalty cases,” Kim tweeted.

“I have met with and am very supportive of Governor Newsom and his decision to help bring an end to the California Death Penalty. Racial bias and unfairness run deep throughout the justice system but especially when it comes to the death penalty,” she wrote. “And we should not be okay with the risk that an innocent person could be executed. I hope we can turn toward better solutions that focus more on healing victims of trauma and prioritizing fairness and justice.”

    So what are we saying? We let them stay in jail and let our tax dollars continue going to them or let them go free risking more innocent lives? How about if innocent people are getting executed, the justice system should be more aware of who’s innocent and who’s guilty so the right people are getting the right kind of treatment?
