French Lawyer/Author Robert Badinter Speaks Out Against Death Penalty

My favorite talk radio program, The Leonard Lopate Show, hosted 80-year-old French lawyer and author Robert Badinter (pictured left) this past Monday.

Badinter, a stringent anti-penalty advocate, spoke about how the death penalty was eliminated in France, as well as his 2000 French book that has been translated into English and recently released as Abolition: One Man's Battle Against the Death Penalty.
