Death Penalty Stats

Internationals Business Times posts:

As of Jan. 1, there were 3,251 total prisoners on death row in the U.S., but the number of executions per year has been declining over the past decade. After reaching a 30-year high in 1999, with 98 executions, the number has fallen gradually and last year a total of 46 people were put to death in the U.S.
However, despite the decline, the U.S. still executes the fourth most people of any country in the world. That puts America right in front of Pakistan, where 365 criminals were sentenced to death in 2010 regardless of a moratorium on executions.

America comes in a bold fourth. That’s not bad! At least we’re still competitive in the world with something.
