I can imagine there being a larger amount of innocent people that have been
executed without there being enough substantial evidence. I came to this
assumption because I’ve seen several cases on TV and magazines that have occurred
this way. However, it doesn’t mean they can be right all the time because the
social media may only show you some parts of the case they want to and not the
fulfilling story. Along with that, in history there has always been corruption
in both the political and religious world. The world has always been manipulated
by money, the “everybody has a price” quote is relevant even though we
might all contain a different price.

            Many more African Americans are
sentenced to death than white people, therefore I think there is a racial bias
in the death penalties. I think African Americans are sentenced more to death
because they are raised different. They grow in more difficult situations which
push them to make wrong decisions, compared to whites which are wealthier and
have it easier. We all are definitely raised different, which is why we don’t all
get along. But either way our parents have raised us to believe dark skin
people are more aggressive which is why they are judged instantly without
evidence just because of the ratio of the bad things colored people have done
in the past. I think     

A recent study believes there is 1 in every 25
sentences to death in the United States for crimes they didn’t commit. The study, released Monday in
the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, “tells you that a
surprising number of innocent people are sentenced to death,” Samuel R.
Gross. (Newsweek) Either sometimes they are framed or misinterpreted
information. Like in some cases such as the execution of Cameron Todd
Willingham who was convicted in 1992 of arson and murder. It was believed that
he had intentionally set the fire with intentions to kill his kids but was
later proven to have been accidental by the Texas Forensic Science Commission.(
8 People Who Were Executed and Later Found Innocent)There are several case in
which they came to realize they have punish the wrong person after doing so. The
most often mistakes found come from years ago which might have been caused by
the depravation of advance technology.  

According to specialists in research hast links
race and the capital punishment revealed that black defendants are four times
more likely to receive the death penalty compared to whites. (The Death Penalty
in Black and White) These conclusion was based on researchers dissecting
several cases and analysis deciding factor which may have influenced the
conviction such as the severity of the crime. What these researchers find may
be a huge influence on these racial dispairties being present in death pebalty
convicitons is the fact that a majority of those in charge of deciding the fate
of the convicted are white.”Of the chief District Attorneys in counties
using the death penalty in the United States, nearly 98% are white and only 1%
are African-American.”This data explains why there more dark skins who are
sentenced to death penalties than whities, also lets remind our selves that the
death penalty is only legal in racial states.

Its surprisenly evidential that there are
sevral  rare cases in wich people prove
themselfs inocent from  a crime.There are
cases  where accidents happens and are
blame on someone who couldnt control the outcome.Its retevly unfair how racial
bias are still present in our world after sevral years.There more white
attorneys who decide the prisoners future which explains a lot of this racial
bias.The most important thing to do before making any type of judgement is to
have facts back up your opinials so you can makke a good moral judgement.
