capital punishment

  • 1

    • La pena capital se aplica en 38 estados de EEUU a personas que han sido declaradas culpables de asesinato. Los métodos de ejecución varían e incluyen la horca, el fusilamiento, la cámara de gas, la silla eléctrica y la inyección letal. Aunque hay alrededor de 24.000 asesinatos cada año, muchos de los condenados a muerte apelan ante los tribunales superiores, lo que significa que muchos presos permanecen durante años en el pabellón de los condenados a muerte (death row) a la espera de ser ejecutados. En Gran Bretaña la pena de muerte por asesinato se abolió en 1965.
