Capital punishment news and notes from the new Death Penalty Information Center website

The extraordinarily valuable Death Penalty Information Center last month updated the look of its website, which seems worth mentioning because this announcement includes information about new materials and additions at the site:

The Death Penalty Information Center has modernized and expanded its award-winning website.  On June 14, 2019, DPIC launched its redesigned website, culminating a two-year project that involved the transfer and reorganization of information on the Center’s more than 7,000 webpages.  Among the most notable additions of the new website are 20 interactive Tableau graphics, including States With and Without the Death PenaltyPrisoners on Death Row, and a number of graphics on executions, exonerations, and grants of clemency.  The graphics will allow users to filter information in a variety of new ways, including narrowing by year or range of years, geography, race, sex, and, for some graphics, race of victim. 

Thankfully, the site still includes on his homepage its coverage of news, developments and resources, and here are links to a few recent items therefrom:

According to the Ten Commandments Thou shall not commit murder. I am all for the death sentence when a person commits mass murder without any regrets and laughs in the face of justice.
