  • All Sentences Depend On Income Level

    Let's be brutally honest for second. Not only does income level affect whether or not a person will receive the death penalty, it makes a difference for anyone entering a courtroom who receives a sentence. In order to receive a fair and just trial in this country you must be able to afford your own lawyer and a good one. Court appointed prosecutors are not enough. People who can hire their own lawyer and pay for a good one, will always receive a lighter sentence. So, of course, you don't see any wealthy people on death row.

  • A person's incomelevel does affect the liklihood of of them receiving the death penalty

    It's pretty much a given that a person that is poor is more likely to receive the death penalty.A person's law representation is very important in this type of case and a poor person is likely to have a public defender which is not likely to be a very good lawyer.

  • Socioeconomic Factors Often Lead to Murder

    A majority of murders in the United States happen in poor neighborhoods and often over drugs. Those with more money, more affluence and more upward mobility don't live in urban ghettos like rats and therefore don't succumb to heat-of-the-moment murders. Usually someone from the fringe of society commits a pre-meditated murder, usually over money. Those with money don't have the same stigmas. So, yes, the lower the income, the more likely you are to murder someone in cold blood.

  • A person's income level affects the likeliness of them receiving the death penalty

    A person's income level affects the likelihood of them receiving the death penalty. This is because of the fact that time and time again, people in a higher income bracket have been shown to commit crimes that tend to warrant the death penalty, and these people often do get off the hook.

  • Yes, race and income determine likelihood of death penalty.

    Justice is supposed to be blind but it certainly is not with regard to race. And with regard to income, surely those who can afford influential, top notch legal representation are going to fare better in the courts than those who represent themselves or who have to rely on legal aid. It is true that income level is going to influence that outcome.

  • Yes, income does affect the likelihood for the death penalty.

    Unfortunately, poor people are much more likely to get the death penalty than rich people. This is because poor people are usually defended by public defenders who are less skilled than expensive lawyers. People with lots of money, however, are able to afford lawyers that know the loopholes in laws and are able to get them reduced sentences.

  • It definitely shouldn't

    Whether or not a particular murderer is the richest person in the world, or the poorest, they are still a killer, and I don't think any amount of money made should influence this at all. They should still be required to suffer the same consequences any other person convicted of murder should.
