Capitol Punishment~ Jodi Arias & Nancy Lanza

Capital punishment in the United States is limited under the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution and, in practice, used only for aggravated murders committed by mentally competent adults.

Capital punishment was a penalty for many felonies in common law, and is enforced in all the American colonies prior to the Declaration of Independence. The death penalty is currently a legal sentence in 32 states and in the federal civilian and military legal systems.

The methods of execution and the crimes subject to the penalty vary by jurisdiction and have varied widely throughout time, though the most common method since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976 has been lethal injection. In 2012, 43 inmates were executed in the U.S. and 3,146 were on death row

Nancy your son charged, tried and found you guilty! Your fate the Death Penalty. Many times I thought, we had no right to take another’s life, in many cases the crimes are so horrible an eye for an eye becoming more a reality for many. Laws can require society to change its thinking about dealing with mental illness, abuse and setting the standard for the consequences of criminal actions committed against people. Do you think all 50 states should re-instate the death penalty?
