    It is. But its use is declining even in the states that have it.

    STATES WITH THE DEATH PENALTY (34)

    Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado,

    Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Idaho,

    Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland,

    Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada,

    New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon,

    Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee,

    Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wyoming

    Plus U.S. Military & U.S. Gov’t

    Most of these rarely (if ever) use it:2010 executions (11 states)

    Texas 17, Ohio 8, Alabama 5, Mississippi 3, Oklahoma 3, Virginia 3, Georgia 2, Louisiana 1,

    Florida 1, Utah 1, Washington 1

    Texas 24, Alabama 6, Virginia 3, Oklahoma 3, Ohio 5, Georgia 3, South Carolina 2, Florida 2,

    Tennessee 2, Indiana 1, Missouri 1

    2008, there were a total of 37 executions, carried out by 9 states:

    Texas 18, Virginia 4, Georgia 3, South Carolina 3, Florida 2, Mississippi 2, Kentucky 1,

    Ohio 2, Oklahoma 2

    I believe in some states it is and more states should have it! Get rid of the scum making our jails crowded and make room for people who deserve to be in there but aren't and are released becase they aren't 'violent' and the jails are so packed they don't keep everyone who needs to be in jail in there.
