Today we’re joined by Demetrius Minor from Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty.
Demetrius is an advocate for criminal justice reform and he’s been working for years to get conservatives to rethink the death penalty.
And you know what? He’s right—there are plenty of reasons why conservatives should be concerned about the death penalty.
The death penalty isn’t cost-effective, it doesn’t deter crime, and it can be applied unfairly. It also doesn’t work as a deterrent and often isn’t even used as punishment by states that still have it on the books.
