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.

"The opportunity at LSSU to do research is amazing. This past summer I motored through coves and islands with Prof. Garvon surveying water birds for the affects of pollution. I spent the other part of my summer on the shore of Lake Superior monitoring nests of the endangered Piping Plover."
