Pro to the question "Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?"
"Our resolve to end crime is only as strong as the laws we pass to punish criminals. By making the death penalty the law of the land in New York, we have demonstrated that resolve, thus strengthening the promise that our children and future generations will grow up in a state that is free of violence."
"Capital Punishment Gives Killers Good Cause to Fear Arrest and Conviction," USA Today, Sep. 1, 1995
