Illinois Governor Spares All Death-Row Inmates

Outgoing Illinois Gov. George Ryan commutes the death sentences for all of the state's death row inmates, citing mistakes in the state's capital punishment system. The move spares the lives of more than 150 inmates, and is sure to focus new attention on the death-penalty debate. Shirley Jahad of Chicago Public Radio reports.
