Imposing the Death Penalty

Record #:
Ten years ago Paul wrote a letter to The State magazine urging that the electric chair be scrapped and replaced with the gallows. There were a number of protests stating that hanging was barbaric. Since then the State did away with the electric chair and replaced it with the gas chamber. In this article Paul argues for public hangings as an effective method for reducing the number of capital offenses in North Carolina.
