A Conservative Case Against the Death Penalty

Drew Johnson, CCATDP supporter and Washington Times columnist wrote a piece articulating the conservative case against the death penalty after the bungled execution of Joseph Wood in Arizona. Johnson said, “The death penalty is an affront to all we hold dear as conservatives and libertarians. It is a disastrous policy that fails at its goal of preventing crimes, it wastes taxpayers’ hard-earned money, it has almost certainly been responsible for killing innocent Americans and it empowers government with the authority to kill its own citizens.”
