Kids Against the Death Penalty

Working to end the Death Penalty through Education and Action!!!

Welcome to the KADP Homepage!!!

Thank you for taking the time to visit our page; we are thankful for your interest in our organization!  

 

KADP originated as a group of kids who came together to speak their minds about the injustice of the death penalty. Although the founding members and current board members are no longer children, they remain dedicated abolitionists who are passionate about educating the youth of today and tomorrow on the biased and arbitrary ways Capital Punishment meted out in Texas.

  Who We Are:

Kids Against the Death Penalty (KADP) is an organization dedicated to ending the Death Penalty across the World In order to accomplish the goal of world-wide abolition, we must unite with other anti-death penalty organizations in an effort to raise awareness, and to unite in strength and in numbers. We are the people, and if we stand in solidarity we can affect change!

 Members of KADP believe that the death penalty is wrong for the following reasons:

  • The Death Penalty teaches hatred and continues the cycle of violence!
  • The Death Penalty punishes the poor and underprivileged.
  • The Death Penalty allows for the Murder of INNOCENT PEOPLE!!!
  • The Death Penalty creates more victims!
  • The Death Penalty is a Cruel and Unusual form of torture.
  • The Death Penalty is NOT a deterrent to murder, or other violent crimes.
  • The Death Penalty wastes tax-payers money!
  • The Death Penalty makes a Murderer of someone!
  • The bible says, “Thou shall NOT kill”. (That includes convicted murderers.) We need to show mercy to those who have wronged us, or mercy will not be shown to us by our heavenly father!

Did You Know?????

As of June 2019, the United States has 2,673 inmates sitting on death row; 732 inmates in California, 349 inmates in Florida, and 223 inmates in Texas.  A majority of these "victims" who are on death row are poor, and cannot and/or could not afford proper representation!  Many of them suffer from mental illness, or mental retardation.  Some did not commit the crime, but were sentenced to die under the Law of Parties; and will die for murders the judge and the juries know they did not commit! 

The Death penalty costs 4 times as much as housing an inmate for life!  The average death penalty cost (per offender) costs $1 million to $3 million dollars (and many go as high as $7 million dollars), while housing an inmate for life costs only about $500,000.  You do the math!
