Storyboard Text

  • In the preceding case of Furman v. Georgia the standards of the death penalty was questioned to be be cruel and highly unusual. Cases have even went to the supreme court because of it your honor!
  • My opponent makes a good argument, but your honor let the court consider that in the case of Furman v. Georgia it didn't say the death penalty went against the constitution, so in the case of TWO murders the death penalty seems sufficient.
  • I hear what both of you are saying, but since the deaths were deliberate the death penalty was deemed appropriate. So the verdict remains the same.
  • Since it was a murder case there was no exclusive, concurrent, nor appellate jurisdiction because the original jurisdiction decision was made by the supreme courts.
  • The plaintiff in this trial was Gregg because he wanted the death penalty to be considered unruly. The majority rule against this was 6-3 at first but changed to 7-2. Those who dissented said it was on the basis of the death penalty being cruel and that it didn't fit the maturity of the nation's growth. The case was presented in March 1976 but had a decision in July 1976.

  • After this case and a few more Georgia decided to do away with the death penalty only in extreme cases. There may one day be an ex post facto law regarding the issuing of the death penalty, but for now it remains the same.
  • THE END.....OR IS IT??
