- Federal Government Legislatures
- United States of America
This is a petition to reform the capital punishment system.
The capital punishment system is inconsistent and often inaccurate. State legislation varies wildly across the country and has led to the false convictions of many innocent people.
The capital punishment system should be run fully and solely by the federal government in a manner similar to the supreme court where a group of preselected judges sit on all capital punishment cases that occur at both the state and federal level.
These judges would be assigned to a section of the U.S. and would oversee/rule on all capital punishment cases that occur in their zone. This would create a uniform system and ensure that all individuals facing capital punishment are tried equally.
We, the undersigned, call on the federal government to reform capital punishment to create a uniform system and ensure that all individuals facing capital punishment are tried equally.
