(1) Capital punishment is punishment by death for committing a crime. Since the early 1800's, most executions have resulted from convictions for murder. The death penalty has also been imposed for such serious crimes as armed robbery, kidnapping, rape and treason. People disagree about whether capital punishment is moral or is effective in discouraging crime.
(2) In the late 1990's, 38 states of the United States had laws that allowed the death penalty. These laws were influenced by a 1972 U.S. Supreme Court decision. The court had banned the death penalty as it was then imposed. It ruled that ''the imposition and carrying out of the death penalty'' was cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the 8th and 14th amendments to the Constitution. But the court left open the possibilty that the death penalty might be constitutional if imposed for certain crimes and applied according to clear standarts.
(3)After the 1972 decision, many state legislatures passed new capital punishment laws designed to satisfy to Supreme Court's requirements. These laws limit the death penalty to murder and to other specified crimes that result in a person's death. Such crimes include armed robbery, hijacking and kidnapping. The laws of several states specify the circumstances under which a judge or jury may impose the death penalty.
