End the Unfair, Arbitrary Death Penalty
- Issue: Despite its own study demonstrating racial and geographic inequalities in the use of the federal death penalty, the U.S. government continues to carry out executions. In the past year, federal judges in New York and Vermont have ruled the federal death penalty unconstitutional based on concerns ranging from the likelihood of executing someone who is actually innocent to the lack of due-process safeguards in the 1994 Federal Death Penalty Act.
- Policymakers must no longer ignore reality: The system of capital punishment in the United States is administered unfairly, arbitrarily, and in a way that risks executing those who are undeserving of death. A temporary freeze on executions would allow us to resolve these problems and re-examine the role of the death penalty.
