Why Capital Punishment Should be Abolished
Loewy, Arnold H.
Discusses cases where people were convicted and sentenced to death, but their convictions were very likely mishandled and they were potentially innocent people sentenced to death. Also, sets out several reasons why capital punishment should be abolished. Concludes with a case of the heinous rape and murder of an 11 month old baby where the mother requested that the perpetrator not be given the death penalty, but instead should receive life without parole so he would be able to think about his crimes every day.
