Is the Death Penalty Murder?

Is the Death Penalty Murder?
by
David Schlecht

Is it appropriate for a government to be killing its citizens? If the error rate on executions is really 1 in 10, is capital punishment too outdated and barbaric for a modern society?

Was Troy Davis innocent? Does it really matter? Is it enough that we weren’t sure? Even if we were sure, are we any better than murderers when we murder our people?

I don’t have the answers. What are your thoughts?
