information on the death penalty
In 1976, capital punishment was reinstated after the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional in 1972. Since then nearly one thousand men and women have been executed in the United States. over one hundred have also been released from death row when it was discovered that they were not guilty of the crime of which they were accused and convicted.

should the death penalty be abolished?
But i do believe some people do belong on death row and is receiving a fair punishment. serial killers , mass murderers , serial rapist, etc are people who deserve capital punishment because their crimes are unforgivable.
