Injustice Anywhere stands with those working to abolish capital punishment.
We understand that the death penalty is a controversial subject. Many people are against the practice in general even if they are convinced of the guilt of the accused, while others feel that it is the proper punishment for crimes committed. There are many factors that come into play including; costs involved, methods used, and moral issues.
Our goal here is not to debate whether or not the death penalty is the appropriate punishment for the guilty, but we do provide resources that go into great detail about the topic for those who are interested in learning more about capital punishment.

Injustice Anywhere advocates abolishing the death penalty based solely on the problems that plague our justice system at both the state and federal levels. It is a fact that any justice system that implements the death penalty will put innocent people to death. There is currently no system in the world capable of preventing it.
Capital punishment is currently authorized in 28 states.
Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wyoming.
There have been a total of 1532 executions in the United States from 1973 to the present. In that time frame, there have been over 185 death row exonerations. The alarming number of exonerations clearly shows that the system is flawed.
The Death Penalty Information Center (DPIC) is a non-profit organization serving the media and the public with analysis and information on issues concerning capital punishment. The Center was founded in 1990 and prepares in-depth reports, issues press releases conducts briefings for journalists, and serves as a resource to those working on this issue. We highly recommend DPIC to anyone looking for credible information regarding the death penalty.
