While catching up on the blogs I subscribe to, I came across a post on a blog written by a prison librarian, which I have been reading for quite a while now. I love reading the stories of success, it reminds me of my time in jail (and by that I mean working there).
This time, it was not a story, but the result of a 2010-survey by the Pew Research Center, asking people about their attitudes toward the death penalty for persons convicted of murder. The responses have been categorized by politics and religious affiliation. The questions participants were asked was: ”Do you strongly favor, favor, oppose, or strongly oppose the death penalty for persons convicted of murder?”
You can find the results at http://www.albany.edu/sourcebook/pdf/t200372010.pdf
I am hoping for an interpretation sometime soon … that would be interesting.
Have a good weekend!
