Robert W. Brown to Governor John Carlin

Robert W. Brown to Governor John Carlin
Creator: Brown, Robert W.
Date: April 4, 1979
Robert W. Brown of Hill City, Kansas, writes Governor John Carlin of Topeka concerning Carlin's veto of a bill reinstating capital punishment. Brown expresses his disappointment with the Governor's veto. He claims that while capital punishment will not deter other people from killing, it will stop killers from killing again. Kansas reinstated capital punishment in 1935 after banning it in 1907. A 1972 U. S. Supreme Court decision invalidated many state death penalty statutes. Kansas did not successfully reinstate capital punishment until 1994. In contradiction to a campaign promise, Governor Carlin vetoed death penalty legislation passed by the state legislature four times between 1979-1985.
