Report your (tentative) white-paper jurisdiction here

In this post, I provided some ideas as you consider options for what jurisdiction will be the focal point for your white paper.  Now it is time to set out your (tentative) choice in the comments.  You are welcome to explain the reasons for your choice, but it is sufficient if you just state your chosen jurisdiction.  Thanks.

I have selected Virginia for my white paper target. However, Alabama is a close second that has not disappeared altogether at this point. I'd like to discuss this selection briefly in person. Thank you!

I am tentatively choosing OK (birthplace of the modern lethal injection protocol), but I am still thinking about Ohio as well.

I am thinking I would like to use an international jurisdiction so was thinking of focusing on Iran, specifically the use of capital punishment for non violent offenses...

I was thinking of addressing issues in federal death penalty law.

I am tentatively thinking of researching an area in Southeast Asia, but have yet to decide definitively. I also may explore possible changes in Eastern European laws since many are newer democracies and have newly developing laws.

Federal or Military

I have tentatively chosen the federal death penalty, but am still considering Ohio as well.

I am thinking of TX, but I need to narrow it down to a county

Posted by: Katherine L | Jan 31, 2007 2:05:44 PM

I am tentatively choosing Vietnam, but I'm still going to look around - maybe China.

Posted by: Stephanie F. | Jan 31, 2007 2:08:41 PM

Probably federal

I have tentatively chosen Florida.

Posted by: Mags | Jan 31, 2007 2:13:57 PM

I'm probably writing on the Arizona death penalty.

Posted by: Kelly | Jan 31, 2007 2:18:13 PM

Most likely California or North Carolina

Posted by: Crunk | Jan 31, 2007 2:31:04 PM

I will probably do Missouri.

Posted by: Alex | Jan 31, 2007 3:36:53 PM

And mine = federal.

Posted by: Janean | Jan 31, 2007 4:20:26 PM

Home state of North Carolina

Posted by: Jordan W | Jan 31, 2007 4:42:01 PM

Either Nebraska or Utah, I think.
