Two potent new death penalty reports

Thanks to the website of the Death Penalty Information Center, I see two potent new reports on the administration of the death penalty:

  • From the ACLU, at this link you can access a new report entitled "Broken Justice: The Death Penalty in Alabama."  The report's overview asserts that Alabama's "criminal justice system and the power given to its trial and appellate judges compromise and limit the ability of capital defendants to get a fair trial and appropriate sentencing."

  • From the DPIC, at this link you can read the executive summary of its new report entitled "Blind Justice: Juries Deciding Life and Death With Only Half the Truth."  According to this DPIC press release, the report "examines death penalty problems from the perspective of jurors and reveals that they often find themselves at the center of a highly charged courtroom battle where they are treated as pawns, manipulated, and kept in the dark."
