Time For A Death Penalty Conversation

Yesterday we were featured in RedState again. The author asks his readers to visit our website to learn why so many conservatives are questioning the death penalty. He explains, The website talks about cost and the very lengthy process it takes to carry out an execution. Sometimes when the death penalty is pursued it’s not imposed. Then there’s the morality question of is it morally sound to take a person’s life? Should we trust the same government that can’t run a flipping website (let alone a major sector of the economy) to execute a human being even if that person is guilty? Now proponents say it’s a deterrent in crime, but that doesn’t stand against statistics. According to deathpenaltyinfo.org, the murder rate in death penalty states versus non-death penalty has been consistently higher since the early 90s.
