The Ozarks Sentinel featured a story about Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty. The author discusses how conservative support for capital punishment is fading. The author stated,
Typically, support for the death penalty comes among Republicans and conservatives, the groups known historically for being “tough on crime.” But a new coalition aims to give a voice to those conservatives who feel otherwise.
Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty (CCATDP) debuted at CPAC in Maryland this year and has since gained considerable publicity. “It’s important to remember that we can be tough on crime, but we have to be smart on crime too,” says Marc Hyden, National Advocacy Coordinator for CCATDP.
The author described in detail the conservative case against the death penalty and highlighted the many conservative and libertarian leaders who oppose capital punishment and support the work of Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty.
