One common false notion among all of us about death has been that, death is “something that happens to others but not to oneself, at least not for a very long time” (Aiken, 2001, p.6).

The reason why statistics may not always show this to be true—and are so open to misuse and manipulation by death penalty opponents is many homicides are not first degree and do not involve a lot of premeditation. Many are caused by negligence or happen on the spur of the moment. For these sorts of crimes, capital punishment won’t be much of deterrence—and this fact will be reflected in the so-called statistics. But then again no public policy will provide much of deterrence for crimes that do not involve intention or are carried out on the spur of the moment. Indeed, I don’t believe there is much...
