Resource ID: #17249
Subject: Death Penalty
Source: World (Tulsa, Okla.)
Date: September 24



The Tulsa World "looked at why the pace of executions had remained unabated in Oklahoma, despite growing concerns elsewhere that the capital punishment system was inherently flawed . . . Described the emotional impact of executions, discussed the types of cases that lead to capital convictions and illustrated the uneven application of justice in the same crime." Reporters also investigated inmate competency, prosecutor misconduct, reviewed cases of those executed in the past decade and researched the role of DNA in such cases. "We also took readers into the penitentiary and outside on the grounds during an execution. Sidebars looked at the appeals process, key decisions in modern death penalty cases and victims' families."
