Leaflet - Europe against death penalty

Death is not justice

Information from countries that have abolished the death penalty continually proves that there is no link between the death penalty and crime rates.
Scientific studies do not back the idea that the death penalty really has a deterrent effect as we believe it does.
Moreover a 2012 study on the death penalty in Connecticut (United States) focusing on 34 years of murder trials,
shows that the death penalty sentence is random. Indeed, the crimes perpetrated by those who avoided the death penalty are as serious as those sentenced to death.
