judicial overturning of the death penalty but stuck with the idea of its withering away despite. setbacks like the annulment and then popular reinstatement of capital punishment in Nebraska. and California referenda Yet popular support was fickle and unstable in this period In 2016. competing referenda in California yielded a victory for the death penalty and time limits for. appeals 3 Nebraska voters reinstated the death penalty after the 2015 legislative abolition. Oklahoma voters limited the power of the state courts to invalidate the death penalty and. expanded execution methods 4 This volatility makes the review of 3 books on the future of the. death penalty published both before and after the 2016 election pivotal in exploring the. common themes of politics law and social support for capital punishment. This review examines three new books on the death penalty published from 2016 2018 for. common and differing theses regarding possible abolition The books reviewed are Courting. Death The Supreme Court and Capital Punishment Carol S Steiker and Jordan M Steiker. 2016 Deadly Justice A Statistical Portrait of the Death Penalty Frank R Baumgartner et al. 2018 Routledge Handbook on Capital Punishment Robert M Bohm and Gavin Lee Ed 2018. Because of the changes predicted many of these books and the death penalty were examined by. author meets critic panels at the American Society of Criminology and Academy of Criminal. Justice Sciences meetings in 2017 2018 forums where this reviewer learned of the books 5 At. the ASC 2017 forum Carol and Jordan Steiker stated that their book might have differed with. regard to predictions of the demise of the death penalty had it been published a month after the. election and not a month before They discuss pending abolition in the concluding chapter of.

The common premise for these books relates to the growing judicial and public frustration with. the death penalty after 40 years of administration due to its costs legal complexity unending. appeals and time botched executions proof of racial and geographic equality and social fairness. and evidence of wrongful convictions These scholars indicated that these problems together. with the drop in violent crime rates had led to a decline in the support for the death penalty 7. This natural decline became even more vital for the authors whose books were published with. the insight after the 2016 election that independent non political forces might affect the. trajectory The latter authors seem less certain of the death penalty s non judicial demise The. authors of the books all cite each other and are known scholars in the field. Public Support, In one of the latter 2018 books reviewed here Bohm states that until the presidential election of.
2016 a realistic path to the death penalty s complete abolition was in sight with declines in. the number of death sentences from 315 in 1996 to 30 in 2016 the number of executions from. 98 in 1999 to 20 in 2016 conducted the number of states that had abolished the death penalty. 19 states without the death penalty in 2016 and the concentrations of executions in a few states. and counties 15 of 3 143 counties account for executions 8. On the legal and court side Carol and Jordan M Steiker indicate in their book that the decisions. regarding bifurcated death penalty trials in Furman v Georgia9 and Gregg v Georgia10 have. ushered in an unsustainable super judicial regulation of the death penalty that focuses on the. extensive expensive and time consuming investigation and development of mitigating evidence. and capital defense teams 11 Much of this might have been avoided had the Court focused on. race issues rather than become a super monitor of arbitrariness which was in fact a surrogate for. Baumgartner et al affirms this citing the Steikers stating that the new death penalty has. dramatically increased the cost of the death penalty A typical capital defense team today. 6Courting Death The Supreme Court and Capital Punishment Carol S Steiker and Jordan M Steiker 2016 p. 7 Talia Roitberg Harmon Diana Falco Wrongful Capital Convictions 575 581 585 in ROUTLEDGE.

Georgia14 and conclude that this has led to the unchecked unjust influence of race in the death. penalty process This is another reason for the demise They state that the court s failure to. address race in its death penalty jurisprudence will produce more enduring and intrusive. regulation of capital punishment perhaps even laying the ground work for constitutional. abolition than the more limited more threatening race based intervention that the Court. abjured 15 The authors emphasis on the Supreme Court s race avoidance is a central issue. regarding the death penalty controversy, Mitigating Evidence. The Steikers continue their argument about the regulatory imploding of the death penalty in their. own contribution to the Bohm and Lee book Their chapter focuses on the well known and long. established dichotomy between juror guidance and standards and individualized sentencing. through consideration of mitigating evidence 16 Justices Scalia and Blackmun split over these. conflicting roles as seen in Walton v Arizona17 and Callins v Collins 18 The Steikers state The. tension between the commands of guidance and discretion has become a substantial destabilizing. force 19 The authors suggest that the court s strong approach to mitigation has also increased the. cost of imposing the death penalty to the point that leads to a drop in capital sentencing This. undermines the use of the death penalty to mere marginality a random arbitrary and unusual. punishment The authors somewhat counterintuitively conclude that robust mitigation practice. is an existential threat to the death penalty While it enhances death penalty defense it raises the. costs and limits death sentencing to the point that it unusual and unconstitutional under the. eighth amendment failing to serve deterrence or retribution purposes 20 This argument obviously. transcends the short term effects of politics and focuses on the underlying legal theory permitting. capital punishment The Steikers original insight and understanding of the self imploding of. 12 Deadly Justice A Statistical Portrait of the Death Penalty Frank R Baumgartner Marty Davidson Kaneesha R.

Court s burdensome oversight and regulatory role in assuring individualized sentencing in each. death penalty case has raised the costliness and arbitrariness of death sentencing to the point of. existential failure and super regulation, Political and Long Term Trends. The tension between the politics and the atrophying of the death penalty leads reviewers to. conclude that the process is bound to continue despite presidential judicial appointments Future. rulings regarding the constitutionality of the death penalty relate to the composition and. interpretation by members of the Supreme Court The addition of Neil Gorsuch rather than. Merrick Garland to the court and of Brett M Kavanaugh to fill the vacancy of Anthony Kennedy. may strengthen the grasp of conservatives and tilt the 5 judge majority toward the death. 21 Lockett v Ohio 438 U S 586 1978, J Acker Questioning Capital Punishment Routledge 2014 p 129 130. J Acker Questioning Capital Punishment Routledge 2014 p 131 citing Justice Stephen dissent in Walton. Walton v Arizona 497 U S 639 1990 p 717 All cases of homicide of every category are contained within the. pyramid The consequences flowing to the perpetrator increase in severity as the cases proceed from the base of the. apex with the death penalty applying only to those few cases which are contained in the space just beneath the apex. To reach that category a case must pass through three planes of division between the base and the apex The first. plane of division above the base separates from all homicide cases those which fall into the category of murder. 2 Courting Death The Supreme Court and Capital Punishment Carol S Steiker and Jordan M Steiker 2016 214 n 31 quoting Hilary Clinton The use of the death penalty should be very limited and rare Electronic copy available at https ssrn com abstract 3304003 2 judicial overturning of the death penalty but stuck with the idea of its withering away despite setbacks like the
