The Temple of Karnak: An Unexpurgated History of the Supreme Court But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed. George Washington; Farewell Address Our founders designed a government with three independent branches, each with a limited role to play. The role of the judicial branch was limited to deciding "cases and controversies" in accordance with laws made by elected representatives of "We the People." As Alexander Hamilton explained the constitutional design in Federalist Number 78, The Judiciary, on the contrary, has no influence over either the sword or the purse; no direction either of the strength or wealth of the society, and can take no active resolution whatever. It may truly be said to have neither force nor will but merely judgement; and must ultimately depend upon the aid of the executive arm even for the efficacy of its judgements. Hamilton went on to assure his fellow citizens in Federalist Number 81 that they could rely on Congress to punish "judiciary encroachments on the legislative authority" by impeachment and removal of the encroaching judges. There never can be danger that the judges, by a series of deliberate usurpations on the authority of the legislature, would hazard the united resentment of the body intrusted (sic) with it (the power of impeachment and removal), while this body was possessed of the means of punishing their presumption, by degrading them from their stations.

85. LII: Law About...the Death Penalty
The death penalty, or capital punishment, may be prescribed by Congressor any state legislature for murder and other capital crimes.
death penalty: an overview
The death penalty, or capital punishment, may be prescribed by Congress or any state legislature for murder and other capital crimes. The Supreme Court has ruled that the death penalty is not a per se violation of the Eighth Amendment's ban on cruel and unusual punishment. Furthermore, the Sixth Amendment does not require a jury trial on the sentencing issue of life or death. In the landmark case, Coker v. Georgia, 433 U.S. 584 (1977) , the Supreme Court ruled that the death penalty is a grossly disproportionate punishment for the crime of rape of an adult woman. The Court came to this conclusion by considering objective indicia of the nation's attitude toward the death penalty in rape cases. At the time, only a few states allowed for executions of convicted rapists. More recently, in Atkins v. Virginia , the Supreme Court used the same line of reasoning to rule that executions of mentally retarded criminals are "cruel and unusual punishments" which are prohibited by the Eighth Amendment The Supreme Court has established that for death penalty sentencing the sentencer's discretion be narrowly guided as to the circumstances that justify imposing the death penalty and that the sentencing process should be individualized.

Bounds against the criminal perversion to simply step over human life." - Prof. Dr. Ferdinand Kadecka (1874 - 1964); Important Austrian lecturer of criminal law and judicial politician. "Humans are the only primates who willfully, extensively and enthusiastically perpetrate the killing of their own kind." - Hans Magnus Enzensberger (born 1929); German lyricist and author.

96. Filipino Executed
A 38year-old house painter convicted of raping his 10-year-old stepdaughter became the first person to be executed in the Philippines since 1976 when he went to his death Friday in a prison outside Manila. Leo Echegaray, who steadfastly maintained his innocence since being convicted in 1994, died by lethal injection. The Philippines abolished the death penalty in 1987 but concern over a rise in violent crime led to its restoration in 1994. Philippine President Joseph Estrada, a strong advocate of capital punishment, said Echegaray's death would serve as a warning that the government means business. Wired News

Focus on the Death Penalty
Though the federal government and 38 of the 50 states have death penalty laws, and public opinion polls in the last decade have generally indicated that the majority of Americans favor capital punishment, organizations and sites advocating the abolition of the death penalty are more common and easily found on the World Wide Web than organizations and sites favoring retention of the death penalty . That more anti than pro-death penalty sites are listed on this page is due to that reality, and should not be construed to indicate the Justice Center's advocacy of either a pro or con position on the death penalty.
This page includes only secular organizations and sites. For religious organizations and sites on the death penalty, see The Debate: Religion

Back to A-Z Index About The Color Key
Books ... About This Page Among Christians there is a range of opinions regarding the death penalty. Some Christians support the death penalty because it was instituted in the Old Testament. They claim that Romans 13:1-5 demonstrates modern governments can still apply the death penalty. However, most concede it is not now used for all situations in which the Old Testament prescribes it (including, for example, adultery, and consistenly disobedient children ) Remember, the New Testament says that whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it.
