Zachary Kmieciak Dr. Matoesian CRJ 100 – MWF 1PM 12/6/2007 Capital Punishment Since 2006 the United States of America has executed 53 people and from the time when the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, one thousand and ninety-nine people have been executed. Of the executions: 11 were female, 630 were white, and 377 were African American. These executions have been preformed by lethal ejection (929), electrocution (154), gas chamber (11), hanging (3), and firing squad (2). Around the world 90 countries have completely abolished capital punishment, 11 allow only in special circumstances, 96 allow the death penalty however 32 of the countries have failed to use it in the last ten years. I believe that the United States should abolish the death penalty, because if there is a mistake after an execution has been completed there is no turning back and fixing the mistake. Also the law does not deter punishment it is just a form of revenge. Just this Wednesday, December 5
