My purpose with these web-pages,
is to get in touch with other teen-agers who also want to become
involved with the work against capital punishment. This is a
hard and complicated problem to solve, but not impossible. Capital
punishment has already been abolished in most European countries.
In order to succeed, it
is important that everyone engages themselves. Activism from
adults only, working towards abolition of the death penalty is
not enough. Teen-agers have resources which unfortunately all
too often aren't utilized, and it is about time that we're entering
this arena with our efforts.
Capital punishment as an
issue, is highly an issue involving teen-agers. In some states
in the US, one can be sentenced to death for offenses committed
at 16 years of age.
February 4th. this year,
Sellers was executed
in Oklahoma for a crime he committed 16 years old.
I hope you will find useful
information on these web-pages, and I welcome you to come back
to me with suggestions to improvements!
