Capital Punishment 2

Gap-Fill Exercise


Where complete could not be achieved, reformers concentrated on limiting the scope and mitigating the harshness of the death penalty. Pennsylvania adopted a law in 1794 to distinguish first- and second-degree murder and the death penalty to murders committed with or in the course of carrying out another felony (first-degree murder). In 1846, Louisiana abolished the mandatory death penalty and authorized the of sentencing a capital offender to life imprisonment rather than to death, a reform universally adopted in the
U. S. during the following century. After the 1830s, public executions to be commonplace, but did not cease entirely until after 1936. and forbidden by law almost everywhere: Crucifixion, boiling in oil, drawing and quartering, impalement, beheading, burning alive, crushing, tearing asunder, stoning, and drowning are examples. or the firing squad are the methods of execution. In some countries that adhere strictly to the traditional practices of Islam, beheading or stoning are still occasionally employed as punishment. to violent crime, and whether it is more effective than the of long-term imprisonment. murder while incarcerated; those who have not yet been caught but who would be liable to a life term if arrested; and revolutionaries, terrorists, traitors, and spies. significant long-term differences in the murder rate; (2) states that use the death penalty seem to have a number of homicides than states that do not use it; (3) states that abolish and then reintroduce the death penalty do not seem to show any change in the murder rate; (4) no change in the rate of homicides in a given city or state seems to following a local execution.
