against death penalty; Hankyoreh with a good progressive cause

Hankyoreh has been lately having a series of articles on death penalty ("Death sentence for death sentence", Sahyôngje'e sahyông sôn'gorûl), and I'm lauding it for making such a strong stand for its abolition. It's a pity the parliamentary committee to which a bill for abolition has been submitted already last year has not been able to proceed in the matter, but now that the Department of Justice has taken up the issue, calling also for public debate, Hankyoreh is doing the right thing:
• 1: "Mortgaged life of a model prisoner"
• 2: Civilized nations already abolished
• 3: Is death sentence impartial

My earlier posts on the topic:
