This month, the Death Penalty Information Center shares a new podcast with its PowerPoint presentation, entitled "Does Capital Punishment Deter Murder?."
View the PowerPoint presentation here.
Listen to the podcast here.
In it, DPIC Fellow Seth Rose and Executive Director Robert Dunham detail research studies that reveal Death Penalty does not deter murders from being committed nor does it work to keep police officers safer than in states where capital punishment is not condoned.
Dunham explains: "There’s no evidence that the death penalty deters murder and there’s no evidence that it protects the police. Murder rates may be affected by many things, but the death penalty doesn’t appear to be one of them."
