Naci Mocan, an economist at Louisiana State University and an author of a study that finds that each death penalty carried out deters five murders said, “I personally am opposed to the death penalty, but my research shows that there is a deterrent effect.” To many, including economists, the cause-and-effect is obvious: When the cost of an object rises, the number of objects bought will decline drastically (Liptak).Innocent people will be killed if the death penalty is kept in the same way that it is used today.Three hundred fifty people convicted of capital crimes in the U. between 19 were innocent of the crimes charged, according to a 1987 study. Congressional report by the House Subcommittee on Civil and Constitutional Rights in October 1993 listed 48 condemned men who had been freed from death row since 1972.Some people appose the death penalty because they believe it cost more to kill the person than to keep them in prison for life.If you put any thought into this at all, you will see that it is entirely wrong.However in most states, the person convicted has a choice between the electric chair or lethal injection.Death by execution has existed as a punishment since the dawn of time. Humanitarian standards maintain that mentally impaired people should not be held criminally responsible for their acts.
