The Death Penalty Information Center has issued its annual report on the state of capital punishment in this country. According to the DPIC, the forty-six (46) executions that were conducted this year constitute a twelve percent (12%) decrease in the death penalty. (In 2009, there were 52 executions in the United States; in 2000, there were 85.)

Capital punishment therefore declined in the first decade of the 21st Century. However, there are 3261 people still living on American Death Rows today and each of them still faces a sentence of death.
