Sally O'Connor doesn't believe two
wrongs make a right.
Last night, the former teacher told a
crowd in the Michigan League why she
did not seek the death penalty for the
man who killed her elderly mother.
"My mother taught me that it's
wrong to kill and that two wrongs don't
make a right," said O'Connor, whose
mother was killed in her Detroit home
17 years ago.
The panel discussion on the effec-
tiveness of the death penalty also
included Ron Hampton, executive
director of the National Black Police
Twenty-five people attended the
event, sponsored by the University's
Amnesty International group.
LSA junior Lisa Wilson, a co-coor-
dinator of Amnesty International, said
the group wanted to continue the theme
of the Martin Luther King, Jr. sympo-
sium, "Campaign for a Unified
Community of Justice."
Wilson said the organizers wanted to
answer the question, "Should (capital
punishment) be a part of a community
Hampton, who was a Washington,
D.C., police officer for 24 years, said
the death penalty is just one of the
flaws in the criminal justice system. He
pointed out that living in Michigan is
not more dangerous than living in a
state that allows the death penalty.
"Is crime in Michigan any more than
in any other state that has the death
penalty?" Hampton asked. "Is it les
safe than in any other place?"
Hampton said a society without the
death penalty makes more sense.
"We know what works - a more
humane society" he said.
One student said she found
Hampton's candid comments about
police procedure especially interesting.
"I found that both of them are really
credible as far as their ideas" said Ann,
an LSA junior, who did not wish to
give her last name.
O'Connor said the government's
logic does not always set a good exam-
ple for the rest of the nation.
"(The government says,) 'We're
frustrated with crime so we're going to
kill the criminal,"' O'Connor said.
"There's no deterrence effect to having
the death penalty on the books."
O'Connor said she has forgiven her
mother's murderer, who received 20-
60 years in prison, and has even writ-
ten to him.
"It took me a long time" she said. "I
didn't know what I wanted to write. I
wanted to know if he has turned his life
around because he will be released

models would be good at peddling

MSA, DPS talk on mutual safety issues
By Katie Plona
Daily Staff Reporter
Michigan Student Assembly mem-
bers met with a Department of Public
Safety official last night to discuss the
two groups' mutual concerns about
In an ongoing effort to improve rela-
tions between students and campus
police, DPS Sgt. Gary Hicks addressed
the assembly and answered a variety of
questions about the department's role.
Both groups said improving the rep-
utation of DPS is a top priority.
"DPS, unfortunately, has a very poor
reputation on campus, whether it be on
purpose or not," said MSA Vice
President Probir Mehta.
DPS officials said they hope students
can feel more comfortable approaching
them with concerns.
"I would like to have a stellar rela-
tionship with MSA and all the student
organizations on campus," Hicks said.
"I would like this to be a working model
for other law enforcement agencies and
Mehta said he expects a solid rela-
tionship between MSA and DPS.
"I want to see a real presence from
students, not just MSA, but other stu-
dent groups on campus," Mehta said.
"The main thing is that they need to
know that they're accountable to the
community as well."
LSA Rep. Dan Serota said the
assembly is behind all efforts to
improve the relationship between the
"Hopefully, MSA's role in improving
campus safety will continue to expand
as it has in the last few years," Serota
said. "It will serve as a good resource
for students in the future."
Hicks said he also has been working
with MSA to plan the upcoming cam-
pus safety walk, which will tentatively
take place April 2.
Hicks said the purpose behind the
event is to "walk through campus and
observe the goods and the bads -
things that need improving."
Students, faculty members and Ann
Arbor residents are invited to join DPS
and other University departments for
the safety walk, Hicks said.
LSA senior Andrew Wright, a mem-
ber of the assembly's campus safety
commission, said this year's safety walk
should be more successful than past
"It's important to keep that contact
up," Wright said. "We worked with
DPS for the last (campus safety
Although the campus safety walk is
currently the main focus between the two
groups, future plans are in the works.
"One thing that's been discussed is
forums in the residence halls that would
center on crime prevention and safety
while on campus and in the buildings,"
Hicks said. "We've also talked about
educating the students that live off cam-
pus and (about) their safety walking to
and from home to class."
