The Conservative Case for Death Penalty Reform

By Marc Hyden Yesterday, All Right Magazine published a piece written at Ian Huyett. Ian described Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty’s reception at CPAC, “When Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty made its striking debut at CPAC 2013, its booth was overwhelmed with hundreds of conservative supporters. To the group’s members, this warm hospitality “confirmed what we already knew” about conservatives and the death penalty.” Ian Huyett went on to describe conservative philosophy and why conservatism and capital punishment cannot coincide in America, “Conservatism, then, does not merely reject the ideas which make possible today’s system of capital punishment. It might even be said to have originated in opposition to the death penalty. Conservative calls to reform this wasteful and systemically unjust arrangement should then be seen, not as a peculiarity, but a welcome return to tradition.”
