Don't make the mistake of accepting anti death penalty material without fact checking it, just as CCATDP distributes it.
Protecting the Innocent
To date, in the modern era, the death penalty is 99.6% accurate in convicting the actually guilty and 100% accurate in correcting that 0.4% error rate, by releasing those actually innocent sent to death row (1).
I doubt that there is a safer sanction or a more accurate government program.
The anti death penalty assertions, to the contrary, have been revealed as frauds, since 1999 (1).
The death penalty is better at protecting innocent lives, in three ways, than is life without parole (LWOP) (1).
As a rule, without exception, the cost studies do not provide an apples to apples comparison to LWOP, they are intentionally deceptive and/or the results have been perverted by the anti death penalty folks (2)
I fact checked them (2). I hope you do so, as well.
Virginia executes within 7.1 years, on average, has executed 70% of their death row murderers (110) since 1976 and has an overturning rate of only 11% (2), a protocol that all states could duplicate, and save money over LWOP, if the liberal obstructionists would get out of the way.
