Weekend capital punishment reading
Death penalty cases and jurisprudence are always rich with drama. But this week's events involving the (after-the-)last-minute stay and cert grant in Hill and its ripple effects seem like a whole new chapter in capital drama. With a weekend break providing a moment to reflect on capital punishment in theory and practice, I see SSRN has these interesting new papers on the death penalty:
- The Second Death of Capital Punishment by J. Richard Broughton
- When the Federal Death Penalty is 'Cruel and Unusual' by Michael Mannheimer
Recap of this past week's (too?) exciting death penalty developments:
- Now what in Florida and Texas?
- A cruel and too usual jurisprudence?
- What's SCOTUS doing in the Hill case?
- Does the SCOTUS cert. grant create a de facto moratorium?
- How will the Hill case impact execution plans?
