Panel Discussion on the Death Penalty
C. A. P. E. (Crime Awareness and Prevention Education) presents "The Death Penalty: A Necessary Evil?" on Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 7 p.m. in TLC 1-305. Expert panel members and other guests will expose the facts and statistics of the nation's most controversial punishment: The Death Penalty. Come prepared to hear and share facts and opinions on the hot topic, as well as explore factors that include race, gender and cost that influence capital punishment. According to deathpenaltyinfo.org, Georgia reverses 80% of its death sentences due to serious errors. Is this reason enough to abolish the death sentence? If not, what should the nation do about the innocent being executed? If so, what punishment should serious criminal offenders receive? These are questions and issues that panel members will address so come and share your opinions. Capital crimes in Georgia include murder; kidnapping with bodily injury or ransom when the victim dies, aircraft hijacking and treason. Be informed! Get involved! Make a difference!
