Unjust in the Much: The Death Penalty in North Carolina : a Symposium to Advance the Case for a Moratorium as Proposed by the American Bar Association
Calvin Kytle, Daniel H. Pollitt
Chestnut Tree Press, 1999 - Law - 125 pages
This is an insightful dialog by legislators, lawyers, psychologists, and professors that justifies the moratorium on the death penalty in North Carolina. This book looks at the demographics of death penalty inmates and the differences in race and class, as well as examines the appalling lack of adequate counsel for these victims. It provides powerful evidence that the death penalty does not deter crime and creates an institutionalized disregard for the sanctity of life.
