No Death Penalty in Wisconsin
Capital punishment is a retributive punishment, which means, in short, that it exacts punishment with an "eye-for-an-eye" philosophy - it sentences the person who committed murder to death for causing the death of another person.
Wisconsin voters have often voted in favor of enacting the death penalty, BUT it has always been rejected by senate subcommittees. WISCONSIN DOES NOT HAVE THE DEATH PENALTY.
