  1. We should implement death penalty for all violent crimes for a year. Just as an experiment.

  2. @Stopthis: murder rate in Texas is higher than in NY, despite them being “number one death penalty state” in the Union.
    Per FBI Uniform Crime Report, for year 2017 (latest available):
    Texas = 5.0 murders per 100,000 people
    New York = 2.8 murders per 100,000 people

    For reference:
    Alabama (with D. P. statute) = 8.3
    Alaska (no D. P.) = 8.4

    Nebraska (yes) = 2.2
    Maine (no) = 1.7

    Previous years show similar trends.
    Conclusion is that rates of crimes that are subject to the death penalty do not depend on it.
