Abstract:

Of Models Assessing the Role of Celerityof Executions on State HomicidesCHAPTER 6; Does Race Matter? Assessing the "Reach ofExecutions"; Race-Specific Results; Descriptive Results; Racial Differences in State Homicide Rates; Racial Differences in Waits for Executions; Are Whites and Blacks Differentially Deterred?; Does the Race of the Executed Offender Matter forDeterrence?; Does Celerity in the Execution of Whites AffectBlack Homicide Rates?; Does Celerity in the Execution of Blacks Affect WhiteHomicide Rates?; Summary of Race-Specific Findings; CHAPTER 7.

Wright examines whether waits for executions impact the deterrent value of capital punishment. She also seeks to determine whether race has a role in producing or inhibiting deterrence. She asks whether blacks and whites are equally responsive to how quickly executions are carried out, as well as, whether the effect of celerity varies with the race of the executed. Longer waits on death row are not related to murders. Indeed, executions and having individuals on death row may be contributing to higher rates of homicides. In states and years where there are no executions, homicides among blacks.
