correlation in crime and punishment. If you steal 10,000 dollars, you should be fined 10,000 of your own dollars and sentenced to 10,000 days in prison. If you strangle someone to death, you should be strangled to death yourself. Sure, there’s massive flaws in that system, but it seems like the most rational answer to the question of fair justice. The level of support for the death penalty in the state of Texas in comparative terms to that of The United States is an interesting topic.

Seeing that the nation is compiled of more right leaning death penalty favoring states than left leaning anti-death penalty states I have my doubts about it being unfavored. In reading the passage provided from BalancedPolitics.Org, I am still just as unsure of whether there is a real answer to if the death penalty is supported or not.

I will say that Texas executes astronomical numbers when compared to California (a leftist state), or Mississippi (according to google, the most right leaning state in the union) so perhaps it’s more than a political question, maybe at its core it is really a question of regard for humanity. The same goes for Texas in comparison to America.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
