Abstract:

A examination of the literature surrounding Furman, Gregg, and death row reveals a complex and limited story of the death penalty. Since the focus has been almost exclusively on executions and commutations, little is known about other possible death sentence outcomes. The primary goal in this paper is to: (1) unravel a series of issues regarding the death penalty; (2) made an argument into way the death penalty should be examined by the totality of its outcomes; and (3) explore which outcomes should be analyzed more carefully, and be a more explicit and better documented part of capital punishment discussion.
