Death Penalty Fades As Hot-Button Issue, by Alan Greenblatt, NPR It's All Politics Blog, May 2, 2014. December 22, 2013 about the limits of framing, by Dan Hopkins, and further coverage that same day from the Huffington Post, by Jason Linkins.
Authors Meet Critics: The Decline of the Death Penalty and the Discovery of Innocence (CUP, 2008) by Frank R. In 2011-12 I supervised Lindsey Stephens in her senior thesis entitled Indigent Defense Funding and its Effect on Capital Punishment in North Carolina, 1976-Present. Race and the Death Penalty in North Carolina, presentation at Appalachian State University, November 6, 2012. Senior Thesis of Anna Dietrich from 2014 on the surprisingly high rates at which death sentences are later overturned on review by higher courts. The Mayhem of Wrongful Liberty: Documenting the Crimes of True Perpetrators in Cases of Wrongful Incarceration.
Which of the following images do you find the most striking to represent the Death Penalty? In literature we read a passage from In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, next year we will analyze the wonderful ballad by O. The one that follows, instead, is a video that harshly opposes Capital Punishment.  How does the actor lead us into his train of thoughts? 1,188 people were executed in the US from 1977 through 2009, primarily by means of lethal injection. Proponents of the death penalty say it is an important tool for preserving law and order, deters crime, and costs less than life imprisonment. Opponents of capital punishment say it has no deterrent effect on crime, wrongly gives governments the power to take human life, and perpetuates social injustices by disproportionately targeting people of color (racist) and people who cannot afford good attorneys (classist). First they came…” is a famous statement attributed to pastor Martin Niemoller (1892–1984) about the inactivity of German intellectuals following the Nazi rise to power and the purging of their chosen targets, group after group.
Artists and intellectuals fought and fight against the death penalty.   You listened to Jeremy Irons’ speech and you saw that some writers opposed it.  What about singers?  Do you know any song against capital punishment? Now read the lyrics of Johnny Cash’s song “25 minutes to go”, what do you expect its tune to be like? Xheni, to make her point against the Death Penalty, found these interesting videos on youtube.  Then she created her own video, amazing! These are the video snapshot selected by the students to exemplify some of the issues dealt with in the film. This is an interview to Sister Helen Prejean, American Advocate for the abolition of Death Penalty. Referring to the young convict Patrick Sonnier,1949-1987, this is what she says: “When I came out of execution chamber, when Patrick Sonnier had been electrocuted to death, I watched this man being killed in front of my eyes and I threw up. Literature can play an important role in changing people’s conscience for the better, this is what Helen Prejean promoted in the State Penitentiary in Oregon. I am very proud to post the first video that four students of mine created.  Girls, you did a superduper job! We chose to shoot this video, because we wanted to raise people’s awareness to the way the prisoners are treated and the choice to put an end to their life.
We protect lives, we fight for human rights that are not granted in all countries and then, we do not give the opportunity to change life to someone who had once made a mistake. Punishment should be a chance for prisoners to understand they made mistakes and to start a new life just like a new person, it should not be a fatal punishment, because it is an irreversible process.
This was a real game played in the 1960s.  These people could be three potential criminals or a guilty person and two liars who decide the man’s faith without even talking to him. For me, the Death Penalty is a brutal act that doesn’t respect the dignity of humanity.
For me, the most striking image of the site representing the Death Penalty, is the first one, because it represents the ungliness of Death Penalty.
I like the first quotation, because it is a real and brutal definition about capital punishment.


I like the second and the third poems too, but in particular the third one, because it tells about hypocrisy of people who believe in God, but agree the Death Penalty. I think the Death Penalty is a murder, because no one man can take the life of another man. The imagine that I find the most striking to represent the Death Penalty is the one with the three men hanging from the ropes and the people passing below because it shows the indifference of people towards this problem.
He says that if we pray to God we cannot be in favor of death penalty because it implies we deny Moses Fifth Commandment. The fourth poem is addressed to all the people who observe what happens without reacting, to all those who assist to outrageous crimes and don’t say nothing.
The song “25 minutes to go” speaks about a man who has only 25 minutes of life and then he will be hanged. Dear Valentina, Thanks for the hard work you have put into answering the different points of discussion present in this page dedicated to The Death Penalty. It looks more like a series of reasonings in favour of the abolition of the Death Penalty than a poem. But a Man that committed something wrong is also a Man with a family, friends, dreams and life. I changed the last few lines a bit, but please check whether I have rendered them in the way you really meant.
While the 2016 presidential election may be 975 days away, speculation is already mounting on who the candidates will be and which party will win. First, I looked to how Democrats and Republicans performed in the last three presidential elections. Finally, the projection also accounts for any polling done within that state and the national polls done thus far.
Analysis: As was the case in 2012, the Democrats likely will start with a much bigger base of safe states than Republicans.
President Obama won every state listed above by at least six points in 2008, and won each state by an equal or larger margin in 2012. Analysis: Mitt Romney won all the states above by at least ten points in 2012 in a disappointing turnout year for Republicans. The bad news for Republicans is that they start with a much smaller base even including Texas in their win column. Analysis: The usual suspects of Florida, Ohio, and Virginia will show up in the swing state list again in 2016. If Republicans are feeling industrious they may try to compete in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin in 2016 to try and give their candidate more paths to Electoral College victory. The most recent poll does give Colorado to Republicans and based on this data and the another poll from March the state was given to the GOP.
In the current projection I give Florida to Republicans assuming they will be more competitive in 2016.
Ryan WittPolitical Buzz ExaminerRyan Witt is a graduate of Washington University Law School in St. Lindsey analyzes the impact of the creation of the state-wide office of Indigent Defense Services on the decline of the use of the death penalty in North Carolina.
Nationally, only about 20-25 percent of death sentences are eventually carried out, and this rate varies widely by state.
By Charlotte McDonald BBC News, 23 May 2015, or related radio interview on More or Less from that same date. Wilde “The Ballad of Reading Gaol” which throws into the reader’s face the hypocrisy of our society and questions the way human beings punish a crime.  Killing a man with a sword is it worse than killing a man with words, with indifference, with negation? Most death penalty cases involve the execution of murderers although capital punishment can also be applied for treason, espionage, and other crimes. They say lifetime jail sentences are a more severe and less expensive punishment than death. What does the song reveal?  What criticism is raised towards the individual embodying justice (the mayor, the police officer)?


Through the study of classic literature, outside students, learn to understand life inside a prison while inside students learn what it is like to be a student. Before that period, he rapped from the perspective of ghetto youth as a whole, and placed himself in the shoes of the people who faced the issues he rapped about.
The following notes will cast light upon certain aspects of the video that otherwise would not be fully appreciated. However it was hard to find the right location because re-creating the atmosphere of a jail is not so easy. As we saw in the trailer, during the period of detention too many times the guards abuse their authority, physically and mentally against convicts.
First of all because they respond with violence to more violence does not make sense because the underlying problem is not solved, rather it will continue to foster a sense of revenge by the families of the condemned.
The two stanzas repeat the same things, but changing the verb is really effective and help the reader to understand what is the writer’s opinion. More or Less is a show that reviews the use of data in the news, and the question is whether Bryan Stevenson's comment that we have exonerated one person from death row for every nine people executed was accurate. About the purpose of writing the book, she states: ”I got to tell this story to the American people, because they never gonna get close to this”.
It is a story of personal transformation through confronting and changing misconceptions people inside and out have about the meaning of education, and incarceration.
That said, 16 on Death Row (1992) is written from the perspective of a young cat faced with the realities of the inner city. For these reasons, I strongly believe that, in these circumstances a man is killed before he is actually executed.
When we see that one of the three has got a picture, symbolizing his death, the other two realize that he is guilty.  The system has found someone to blame, no matter if he is really guilty or innocent, the system did its work.
In our opinion this is symbolic of life as more powerful than death: nobody can decide to “stop” somebody’s life. We decided to film this scene in a corridor because it is dark and it is a narrow corridor, all these features convey to the spectator a feeling of anxiety, which is what the convict feels. Then because if you are not completely sure that he is guilty you can not kill an innocent person. I expected the rythm more slower but i think that the singer choose this tune to defuse the moments of anguish before the death.
The anger and passion in his songs are real, and that is how a lot of people in those situations feel. Besides I think killing a person is meaningless; if someone killed many people or just one, if someone raped or abused a child, he has to live with this mistake for his entire life. Are there any points that make you understand that the poems  are somehow autobiographical? They are often forced to live in dark places, where the only companionship they have is themselves.
We decided to represent the people that are in favor of death penalty with masks because sometimes people are afraid of saying their opinion or what they think and they do not want to show their faces.
The first reading describes the desire to make the viewer experience what the executed has. So the mask is a metaphor for their fear of assuming their responsibility for their decision.
The second one discloses the unfeeling people who watch the execution without telling anything.
The nun is the symbol of the Church, whereas the girl is a metaphor for all of that people that fight against death penalty.
