Talking Points
How to Talk about Abolishing the Death Penalty in Montana
  • Racial, economic and political biases permeate our legal system.
  • Evidence suggests that hundreds of errors have occurred in spite of safeguards designed to guarantee that no innocent people are executed.
  • Structural inequities exist in the death penalty's use and make it unjust.
  • The exonerations of innocent people have shown that human error is inherent in our criminal justice system.
  • 95% of defendants charged with capital crimes are impoverished and cannot afford their own attorney to represent them.
  • The death penalty is a denial of our human rights.
  • Montana can offer life without possibility of parole as an alternative to a death sentence.
