And Another Thing... with Christian Estabrook


Oct 2, 2018

Right now in the majority of states in America, capital punishment is legal. The way the death penalty is applied varies dramatically based on location as well as the race, gender, and socioeconomic status of those involved in the alleged crimes. Why are some criminals put to death when others of similar crimes aren't? How willing are people to sentence someone to their ultimate fate? Does executing someone achieve what it was meant to? Can we bear the cost if someone is executed and later exonerated when it is too late to correct any mistakes? Sophie joins me once again to talk about her career working with people on death row and we explain some of the ways our opinions on capital punishment have evolved over the years.
