Report! Broken Justice: The Death Penalty in Alabama

Of all the actions carried out by the state, none warrants more cautious implementation and stringent review than the imposition of the death penalty.

The structure of the state's criminal justice system and the power given to its trial and appellate judges compromise and limit the ability of capital defendants to get a fair trial and appropriate sentencing.

As part of our work in the defense of civil liberties, the ACLU issues reports that study and note developments in civil liberties. Visit our National site for more publications to download.
