Death penalty hot issue in U.S. legislatures By LOUISE COOK Associated Press Writer Legislatures in almost two- thirds of the 50 states in the United Stales are considering measures to reinstate the death penally and lawmakers in [our other states already have passed bills bringing back capi- tal punishment. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last July, in cases involving Georgia and Texas, that the death penalty, as imposed in most statse, was uncon- stitutional. The court rul- ing left the way open for legis- latures to reimpose the death I Ital punishment is an Issue in almost every state. Most of the proposals provide execution as the punishment for killing a po- liceman or fireman, for air- plane hijacking and for various types of murder, including mur- der committed during the course of another crime. Our interpretation is that the Supreme Court is not barring the death penalty if it is man- said Sheldon Deychok, chairman of a special Louisiana commission-on capital punish- ment. "That is, the penalty must be imposed on both the rich mass and the poor man." penally, providing it was ap- plied uniformly. An Associated Press survey showed that the question of cap> No action has been taken on the commission report. Supporters of capital punish- ment cite the death penalty as a potential deterrent to crime and complain about the coddl- ig of fe'ons. "Some people are out to pro- tect the blood-thirsty animals that go out and rape people and kill them, but not said Bernie Konecky, South Dakota state Representative, chief sponsor of a bill to make the death pnelaty mandatory for certain crimes. The bill passed the House by a narrow margin and is pending in the state .Sen- ate. 4 APPROVE DEATH Ohio, Wyoming and Florida have reinstated executions; the Georgia general assembly has passed a measure to restore the death penalty and Governor Jimmy Carter has said he will sign it. The Ohio measure, enacted last December as part o( a revi- sion of the state's criminal laws, is typical. It defines capi- tal for which a death penalty may be im- premeditated mur- der, murder by concealed weap- ons and felony states that the death penalty can be applied only if one of seven "aggravating circumstances" is present, but also lists three "mitigating circumstances" re- quiring a life sentence rather than execution. The aggravating conditions include assassination of certain public officials, murder for hire or gain, murder of a law officer and nvjrder while committing kidnapping, rape, arson, rob- bery or burglary. The mitigating-circumstances Is applied If the victim In- duced or facilitated the killing, if the killer was under duress, coercion or strong provocation or if "the primary cause of the crime was the prisoner's psy- chosis or mental deficiency." HEARINGS NEEDED The law, to take effect Jan. 1, 1974, requires separate hearings to determine guilt or innocence and to decide the sentence. It also specifies that tire judge must impose the death penalty if one of the aggravating condi- tions was present without any of the mitigating circum- stances. Several bills are pending In many states. Nine different pro- posals are on file in Nevada, for example, ranging from one that would impose the mandatory- death penalty only for slayings of lawmen and prison guards to another that provides execution for any one of 10 different kinds of killings. California lawmakers In- troduced seven bills dealing with the death penalty after voters last November approved a ballot proposition permitting the legislature to re-establish the death penalty. The Virginia general assem- bly rejected bills that would have provided the death pen- alty. One would have allowed execution for killing a law en- forcement officer; the other provided capital punishment when a defendant, once con- victed of first-degree murder, was again found guilty of the same crime. are RIGHT at SAFEWAY COFFEE Vacuum Packed..................................
