Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - My Choice Review

Some states in the US have the death penalty, others don't. 

There is a statistical correlation between the death penalty and higher homicide rates in the US. 

Whether the death penalty causes the social violence, or the social violence causes the death penalty, can be questioned. 

Does the death penalty cheapen life, and lead to more killing? Do people commit murder in states with a death penalty as a sort of convoluted suicide, or are people in states with high murder rates so afraid of social violence that they turn in desperation to the death penalty to try to make the killing stop by killing the murderers? 

Maybe both are an effect of higher tolerance of violence in certain states. 

Maybe it's all a coincidence and doesn't really mean anything.

the retention of the death penalty, which may explain the consistently higher rates of homicide in the US compared to abolitionist, less-warlike industrialized countries.''
