Capital Punishment and Closure


Never miss a show! Email Signup Apple Podcasts Google Podcasts

In murder cases, how can justice best be served for society and the victim’s family? Will an execution bring closure, as proponents of the death penalty contend? And, how is the potential for closure affected if flaws, corruption, and malfeasance are involved when applying the death sentence? On this Prison Desk edition of Making Contact, we take a look at the death penalty, wrongful executions, and some alternatives to death row.
