ABSTRACT
The article reports that Supreme Court in the U.S. once again is considering the issue of death penalty. The Supreme Court of North Carolina ruled that the effect of the previous death penalty decision was to change North Carolina's discretionary into a mandatory death penalty law. It has been observed that in New York State since the repeal of capital punishment, the proportion of murders committed by strangers has risen from one-fifth to one-half.
