Baltimore County State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger, center, announces a petition drive to try to overturn a repeal of Maryland's death penalty on Friday, a day after Gov. Martin O'Malley signed a repeal bill into law. State Sen. James Brochin, D-Baltimore County, left, and Del. Neil C. Parrot, R-Washington, also are hoping to overturn the repeal. Parrott says the purpose of the sign is to ask state residents whether they would prefer to have the death penalty on the books, if a terrorist attack happened in Maryland.
