Kill the Death Penalty

Eureka! Another prediction shows signs of coming true!

United Press International - NewsTrack - U.S. death penalty popularity dropping
WASHINGTON, March 23 (UPI) -- Several U.S. states have suspended carrying out death sentences as capital punishment undergoes another round of judicial inquiries.

Eight of the 38 states that have the death penalty on their books have stopped the practice because of a series of legal moves, including three cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, reported.

A Gallup poll last October showed that 64 percent of U.S. respondents favored the death penalty but that is down from 80 percent in 1994.
