In 2006, police officer John Breckinridge’s partner, Michael Briggs, was killed in the line of duty by a man who is now New Hampshire’s only death row inmate.

In these two video segments, Rachel Maddow discusses ongoing efforts to abolish the death penalty in New Hampshire and interviews Breckenridge about his recent change from death penalty supporter to opponent.

Atlantic’s Reconciliation & Human Rights programme in the United States funds efforts to abolish the death penalty.
