Death Penalty Information Center
The question with which we must deal is not whether a substantial proportion of American citizens would today, if polled, opine that capital punishment is barbarously cruel, but whether they would find it to be so in light of all information presently available. - Justice Thurgood Marshall.

Our other goal is to educate the public about the current state of the criminal justice system with the aim of reforming it so that it is more accurate in its investigations so that grievous wrongful convictions are less likely.
