Capital Punishment 3

Gap-Fill Exercise


to capital punishment has been that it was always used unfairly, in at least three major ways. First, women are sentenced to death and executed, even though 20 percent of all in recent years have been committed by women. Second, a disproportionate number of nonwhites are sentenced to death and executed. Before the 1970s, when the death penalty for rape was still used in many , no white men were executed for raping nonwhite women, whereas most black offenders found guilty of raping a white woman were executed. Third, poor and friendless defendants, those with inexperienced or court-appointed counsel, are most likely to be sentenced to death and executed. of the death penalty, however, have insisted that, because inherent in the laws of capital punishment causes sexist, racist, or class bias in its use, these kinds of are not a sufficient reason for abolishing the death penalty either on grounds of fairness or on that it is a "cruel and unusual punishment," the 8th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. have replied that the death penalty is inherently subject to caprice and mistake in practice and that it is impossible to administer . in the 1970s made the death penalty in the U.S. unconstitutional if it is mandatory, if it is imposed without providing courts with sufficient guidance to determine the appropriateness of the sentence, or if it is imposed for a crime that does not or threaten life. Apart from crimes such as treason and espionage, about which the Supreme Court has no decisions, the death penalty was confined to crimes of murder, including felony murder (that is, any homicide committed in the course of committing another felony, such as rape or robbery). Thirty-seven states revised and reenacted their death penalty laws after the 1972 Court ruling that all but a capital statutes were unconstitutional.
