On 9th May 2007, Philip Ray Workman was killed by lethal injection in Tennessee's execution chamber. He had been on death row for the past 25 years. Workman's case, as has happened in other cases, divided a federal court. Many people opposed the execution. The USA should join the 129 countries that have abolished the death penalty in law or practice.
