Title: CAPITAL PUNISHMENT
Movie ID: VT3204
Movie Number: 3204
Description: Capital punishment has been a hotly contested issue in the United States throughout its history. Private citizens as well as legislators have long argued the nature of justice and a society's justification in requiring human beings to forfiet their lives for having committed certain types of crimes. This open-ended program dramatizes the circumstances of a murder for hire and the subsequent trial of the alleged murderer. During this trial, the opposing attorneys debate the imposition of the death penalty from three perspectives: its usefulness as a deterrent, its justification as retribution, and its interpretation as cruel and unusual punishment as characterized in the 8th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
