There is no lower crime rate or murder rates than states without such laws in place for capital punishment. Same for states that have the law.

Retribution

Irrevocable Mistakes

Race

Blacks and hispanics are most likely to be put on death role or get treated with capital punishment.

Who gets executed?

The poor get penalized because of their defense. If their defense was good, there would not be an issue in who goes in the chamber.

Not the ones that have a good defense on their side.
