Removal of the death penalty in North Carolina

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

 Each year the state of North Carolina spends $11 million tax payer money to keep the death penalty on the books, despite the fact that North Carolina has not used the death penalty in over 10 years.  In order to keep capital punishment North Carolina officials spent $36 million in court and lawyer fees to stay "active" over the past 7 years.  Meanwhile our education systems are suffering. In 2017 North Carolina lawmakers require a $3.2 million budget cut for "low preforming" schools stating that "low performing schools deserve less money" and the department of education approved a $2.5 million budget cut. College need based financial aid received a $54.3 million budget cut. There is a need for a strong education in school systems in North Carolina.  By removing the death penalty and putting taxpayer money back into the education system. We would be able to give our students better resources and learning instructors better salaries.
