The Government Can’t be Trusted With the Death Penalty

By Marc Hyden Today the Ludwig Von Mises Institute published a piece that I wrote. The article explores the constant failures of the government to maintain capital punishment as a program and attempted to find the source of what makes the death penalty process a failure process. I said, “The framework that governs the death penalty guarantees dysfunction.” I went on to say, “The death penalty’s inception may not be based on nefarious schemes and likely comes out of a desire to ensure justice and safety. However, the government’s monopoly on criminal justice proceedings and its insulation from responsibility when the system fails, are at the root of the system’s failures.”
