Where is the equality? Non-existent. Crime and punishment are havens of injustice.

The death penalty saves more innocent lives, in three ways, than does life without parole (LWOP) (1,2).

No credible case of an innocent executed, in the US, at least since the 1930’s (1,2).

Since 1973, (a) there have been 14,000 – 28,000 actual innocents murdered by those known murderers that we allowed to murder, again – recidivist murderers (two different recidivism studies from different years) (1) (b) up to 200,000 have been murdered by those criminals we have released or not incarcerated (1).

The evidence that the death penalty deters some is overwhelming (1,2).

The evidence that the death penalty deters none does not exist (1,2).

Death is feared more than life. Life is preferred over death. What is feared more deters more. What is preferred more deters less.

The “exonerated” and “innocent” released from death row is an obvious fraud, easily found by fact checking, yet, most often, simply passed onto the public by the media, aiding in that fraud, even though the anti death penalty folks have admitted the deception (3).
