Hi Lola,
I really like your post and how you explained the statistics of the issue and also how the death penalty is practiced in the US. Your argument is backed up by a lot of really good evidence. Here is a source that talks about more facts surrounding this issue. https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2018/08/02/5-facts-about-the-death-penalty/

Hey Lola,
Your post was really interesting. I like how you gave evidence supporting the death penalty, but then used reasoning to give credit to the other side of the argument. Here is a link to an article stating a case that opposes the death penalty: (https://www.aclu.org/other/case-against-death-penalty). In particular, it presents statistics on innocent people given the death penalty.

Hi Lola,
I found this interesting that less and less people consider capital punishment effective as a deterrant to crimes. Instead, impriosnment has been more effective. I think it may be time to revise the punishment given to criminals. Here is an interseting ressearch from Dartmouth College. https://www.dartmouth.edu/~chance/teaching_aids/books_articles/JLpaper.pdf
