CITIZENS UNITED for ALTERNATIVES to the DEATH PENALTY
Get the Facts about the Death Penalty. There is an Alternative to the Death Penalty!
Since about 2000, the American people have gotten a much more nuanced understanding of the death penalty. Americans have heard from murder-victim family members who oppose the death penalty. They have learned about prosecution's misconduct and the mistakes that are far too often made, mistakes that have sent at least 121 people to death row who did not belong there, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. Many Americans have concluded that whatever their private moral positions on capital punishment, it is pretty clearly a deeply flawed system that may not be worth all the time, energy and money (incompetent defense lawyers, prosecutors suppressing evidence, misinstruction of juries, reliability of eyewitness identification, the use of jailhouse snitches and, in some cases, the integrity of police, and biased judges and jurors) . The factors that determine which cases end with death are arbitrary. The
prestige and wealth of defendants, the quality of their defense, even the
race of their victims can play into the outcome of a case. While blacks are
far more likely to be murder victims, the overwhelming number of murders
that lead to a death sentence involve victims who are white. And in the past several years, voters have not been supporting candidates who promise to be the executioner in chief, and they have not been punishing candidates who think the death penalty is a policy whose time has come and gone. "It's better to be rich and guilty than innocent and poor," said Richard
Jaffe, a criminal defense lawyer in Birmingham who has represented a number
of capital defendants. The Equal Justice Initiative's Stevenson argues the question is not whether these killers merit the state's ultimate punishment.
"The question has to be not whether they deserve to die. The question is, do we deserve to kill?"
