Now, although the death penalty has been abolished in many countries, it still persists in some parts of the world.

These countries include China, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, Iran and, of course, the United States of America.

The death penalty has been part of the US justice system for centuries…

And the measure of punishment, which is often called the death penalty, has been in effect since about 1608 … what old.

And over the years, this topic has become more and more controversial and taboo.

Many US states have now abolished the death penalty for a number of reasons…

Including risk factors for executing an innocent person, the fact that it does not prevent future crimes, and the fact that it is both discriminatory and can be used for political purposes, according to Amnesty.

Organizations like Amnesty have fought for decades to completely abolish the death penalty, trying to expose and hold accountable governments that continue to use the death penalty.

Many consider the death penalty absolutely barbaric.

When questions are asked, it is difficult to justify the killing of its citizens by the state.

Activists claimed that many of those executed over the past few years were killed despite severe mental and physical illnesses…

Which should have made the death penalty an unconstitutional punishment.

And some states have made tremendous progress in this area.

History was made by Virginia, being First ever Southern US state to abolish the death penalty. Other states that have abolished the death penalty include Alaska, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Delaware, New York, and Washington.

Virginia became the 23rd state to abolish the death penalty.

And many hope that other southern states will follow suit.

But one state that shows little sign of movement on this issue is Oklahoma…

The date of the execution of a man who spent decades on death row in Oklahoma has become known.

It all started when Richard Glossip was convicted of hiring a hitman…

Justin Snead was reportedly hired to kill Glossip’s boss, Barry Van Treese, in 1997.

But what’s even worse in this case is that Sneed testified against him…

As a result, Glossip was found guilty of murder and sentenced to death in 2004.

Since then, the dates of his execution have been set 3 times.

Glossip’s last execution date was “set seven years ago”, according to Meow.

But because of Oklahoma’s prison conditions, officials couldn’t carry out executions…

As reportedlythey received “the wrong mixture of lethal injections” for the process.

It has also been reported that there are several Glossip supporters…

And they believe that he No guilty.

Although a fourth execution date has been set, the 59-year-old is clearly “innocent” in the eyes of some of his supporters…

According to ProPublicathese supporters believe that Glossip was “innocent” and even claimed that “the prosecutor’s office ordered the destruction of important evidence” in a 1997 murder-for-hire case that resulted in his death sentence.

But there is more…

Because the federal judge has often requested that his case be reopened.

Although Glossip’s verdict launched an independent investigation.

He was punished by prosecutors for unforgivable acts…

More recently, lawyer Stan Perry from the law firm Reed Smith spoke about the investigation.

“We have concluded that no reasonable jury, after hearing the full report and the disclosures detailed in that report, would find Richard Glossip guilty of capital murder,” he said.

Republican state spokesman and committee member Kevin McDagle also agreed and said “the investigative report confirmed that we do have an innocent person on death row.”

“If we execute Richard Glossip, I will fight in this state to abolish the death penalty simply because the process is not clean,” he added.

The report also explored that a federal judge said that “unlike many cases that have imposed the death penalty, the evidence against the plaintiff was not conclusive.”

But the outpouring of support still hasn’t stopped Glossip’s recent exercise date…

Since it is scheduled for September 22 this year.

However, his lawyer released a statement and said Glossip has already survived “three agonizing execution dates”.

And he added that it “does not serve justice” to set a fourth date for the execution of an “innocent person” before all this “new evidence can be fully considered in court.”

“The public reaction to this new evidence clearly shows that the people of Oklahoma, even those who support the death penalty, do not want the execution of an innocent person,” he concluded.

And even anti-death penalty activist Helen Prejean has spoken out in favor of Glossip.

“I know that I must do everything in my power to save this man’s life. When everything is signed, sealed and delivered, what do you do? You go to the public and raise questions,” she said.

And since then Glossip has been served his last meal 3 times…

Which included:
