Why It’s Time to End the Death Penalty in Ohio
Ohioans are ready to repeal the death penalty. A recent poll showed that only 30% of Ohioans still support the death penalty as an appropriate punishment to aggravated murder. We know that the death penalty is a failed policy that is not an effective response to violence, nor does it help victims’ families heal. We know the death penalty costs taxpayers untold tens of millions of dollars more than alternatives. We know that innocent people have been and will continue to be sentenced to death for crimes they did not commit. The simplest solution to drug problems, addressing victims’ needs, keeping communities safe and guaranteeing we’ll never again send innocent people to death row is the one thing the legislature has failed to consider: repealing the death penalty.
