A new essay in a Brooklyn Law Review argues that executing long-serving, aged genocide quarrel inmates should be deemed unconstitutional as vicious and surprising punishment.  In A Modest Proposal: The Aged of Death Row Should Be Deemed Too Old to Execute, Professor Elizabeth Rapaport (pictured) of a University of New Mexico School of Law maintains that oppressive genocide quarrel conditions, along with a infirmity of a flourishing series of aged inmates due to a aging process, outcome in additional pang that should describe their execution a defilement of a Eighth Amendment. Rapaport states, “The prolonged delays between attestation of judgment and execution, and a substantial doubt about either any cursed male or lady will be executed in a complement of collateral punishment, have given arise to a new form of cruelty different to a ancestors. Delay is not divergent though normal. It can't be purged from a complement but doing unsuitable assault to constitutionally mandated due process.”
