dc.description.abstract The death penalty is emerging as a powerful political issue, and the issue is not going away any time soon. There are currently more people on death row than ever, and the pace of executions is picking up. Because executions are done in the name of and on behalf of all the people, everyone has a moral stake in the issue. And because the federal government now employs the death penalty, the issue affects all Americans, even those in the states that rarely or never carry out the death penalty. In such a climate, all citizens have an obligation to think through their position on the death penalty, and it is important that we discuss our reasons for supporting or rejecting the death penalty. Professor Floyd adds to the discussion with his thoughts on the morality of the ultimate and irreparable punishment. en_US
