I think that this is a really good and interesting article not only because it says a lot ofthee reasons why death penalty is bad but it also talks about how expensive it is and the problem that deathpnalty causes.

 

Another reason why I like this article is that it is from a really reliable source that is new York times that is a really famous news paper.

 

Also this article has a lot of statistics and statements  like tho part where it says  how much  it costs for the government  to put someone in death penalty.

I think that this is a very good article because it has very good reasons to abolish the death penalty. After injecting an untested drug on a death penalized man, he suffered from a broken vein and died from a heart attack later. This caused the president Barack Obama to ask to give the death penalty a review.

Jeremy Irons talks about the death penalty

Actor Jeremy Irons outlines arguments against capital punishment in a clip to support Amnesty International's campaign against the death penalty.

Via Janet Devlin
Mateo Gómez's insight:

This source is the one I would defenetily use to prevent Death Penalties in th future because he uses a lot of rebuttal, he states reasons why Death Penalties should be supported but then he gives more reasons why it should be prohibited. Jeremy Iron also gives plenty of information on consequences of a Death Penalty. It isn't really long and is very clear to understand. I would choose this in the future to write and article about this topic.

This is a very useful source because it states reasons why Death Penalties that use drugs and injections to kill people should stop in the US and any other part in the world. It also gives many quotes from specialists that oppose pharmacists to create drugs used in Death Penalties without the author stating his/her opinion and using facts instead. It is also easy to understand and it uses the names of places they got the information where readers can find out more about the topic.

Mateo Gómez's insight:

This source is helpful because it shows the story of a real man escaping a life sentence, and how he is working to stop the death penalty. The man stated on this article was falsely accused of first-degree murder but managed to escapes the death sentence. This story is convincing because it's helpful hearing from someone who really experienced it. This article also gives information of how many Californians still think that the death penalty is helpful.

Scott Gibboney's curator insight, January 20, 2014 9:26 PM

Keeping the death penalty alive in California costs taxpayers an estimated $185 million per year. Since its implementation in 1978, 13 people have been executed at a cost of $13 billion. { Yes you read right 13 people 13 billion $ } Our legal system is just plain nuts ! I oppose the death penalty ...too many innocents die !
