Rome will light up the Colosseum in support of the planned abolishment of the death penalty in New Jersey, a lay Roman Catholic organization said today.

The Sant'Egidio Community, which is at the forefront of an international anti-death penalty movement, said in a statement that the arena will be illuminated when Gov. Jon Corzine signs the legislation within a week.

New Jersey is poised to become the first U.S. state in four decades to abolish the death penalty after votes by state legislators this week.

Sant'Egidio praised New Jersey's decision, saying it is a "crucial passage" for a worldwide moratorium on capital punishment.

Rome's Colosseum, once the arena for deadly gladiator combat and executions, has become a symbol of the fight against capital punishment.

Isn't that the reason they built the Colosseum in the first place?

Linger to the end of a story.

Also, Romans didn't invent the death penalty, it's much older than that.

the Colosseum was quite possibly the most amazing thing I've ever seen in my life, save maybe the Pantheon. just seeing it lit up would be amazing.

i used to be hugely pro capital punishment, however my support has taken a huge hit over the past year or so with recent developments of new techniques. its hard to support a system that is flawed.

Who gives a fuck about them lighting the thing up.

We as a nation should never outlaw execution. There are some fucks that deserve to die for their crimes. Are people in New Jersey saying that if Osama were caught and given death by our court system that they'd want him living in prison creating a militant movement?

Maybe he should just sit in isolation writing memoirs and playing with handy crafts like cross stitch.
