Marjorie Cohn On Execution By Drones and Mothers In Charge KC Fighting For Justice and An End To Murder In KC

Is Execution By Drones Really Legal? Is it Ethical?

While most Americans accept the targeting of terrorist chosen by the President for execution, many legal scholars have been pointing out drone attacks are not only illegal, but immoral. Many others are saying the “collateral damage” of many more innocent people killed than terrorists is just creating more terrorists and making us less safe. I mean really would we be willing to let our death row inmates loose and then execute them by drone attack on the streets of America?

Host Margot Patterson talks with Professor Marjorie Cohn, of Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, California. Professor Cohn has written extensively on conditions in US prisons, torture conducted by our government here and abroad and is now taking on the many issues raised by drones.
