Created and run entirely by Mattie Elliot, my mission at Stop Capital Punishment is to spread awareness and provide my reasons for why we should end the death penalty once and for all.
Every day, people are executed and sentenced to death by the state as punishment for a variety of crimes – sometimes for acts that should not be criminalized. For example, in some countries, you can get the death penalty for acts such as drug abuse and drug violence — whereas in other parts of the country, this exact act will only result in jail time.
The death penalty is inhumane, cruel and not always carried out through a fair trial. My mission at Stop Capital Punishment is to spread awareness, and bring to light several news and case stories where the death penalty has been misused and unfairly handed upon individuals.
