Capital Punishment:

How Much is TOO Much?

How Much is Too Much?

Capital punishment support has been soaring as of late, and so have executions. According to deathpenaltyusa.org, a site that helps others to see the injustice in high numbers of executions, in 1964, there were 15 executions. Last year, the number was 72.

How You Can Help

Voice your opinion. Write a congressional representative, or even a senate representative. While there are many people who support a decrease in executions, there are a good majority who don't. There nearly infinite options to fix it. Be creative! You could contact the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty (NCADP). You have options, except for one: sitting around, doing nothing, like an ostrich with its head in the sand. So get moving!
