Drew Johnson of the Chattanooga Times Free Press reports on Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty and the death penalty’s many flaws. He said,
In 2011, public support for the death penalty fell to its lowest level in nearly four decades. That’s because the death penalty drains resources, fails to serve victims’ families and loved ones, is applied more often to poor and minority offenders, does nothing to keep communities safe and can result in the execution of innocent people, according to Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty.
The group is right on every level.
Drew Johnson concludes that the death penalty is not successful in any function, and we, as conservatives, should consider repealing it.
