Russell BAC 1010 M4 Capstone March 30, 2017 Death Penalty The Death penalty is a controversial capital punishment which is given against a crime usually involving murder. There are several good arguments for and against capital punishment. The argument against the death penalty include that even though it's a punishment for a murder, it won't hurt to punish the murderer with a less harsh sentence and the exorbitant costs associated with the process. Research will address the costs and affect capital punishment has on crime. The primary research question is: Is the death penalty an effective tool in fighting crime? The secondary research questions include: ● Is there a link between executions and reduced murder rates? ● What are the costs to incarcerate inmates awaiting execution? ● How many executions are conducted each year in comparison to murder committed? ● Is the death penalty inherently unfair and racially biased?
