This paper examines the death penalty and its use worldwide, concentrating mainly on America. The paper cites facts from Amnesty International regarding worldwide use, as well as in many cases in America, where the innocent have been exonerated after spending time on death row. The paper also points out the ineffectiveness of the death penalty as a deterrent of crime.

From the Paper:

"The latest information from Amnesty International shows that over half the countries in the world have banned capital punishment. (Amnesty International) Of these countries, some have banished the death penalty for all crimes, others have abolished the death penalty for all but the most exceptional crimes and can be considered abolitionist in practice; they retain the death penalty but have not carried it out in the past years. Seventy eight other countries use the death penalty very sparingly. America is not one of those countries."
