Interesting things I've learned while (gasp) studying:


Colorado allows the death penalty as an option in the following cases:

first-degree murder
kidnapping resulting in the death of the victim
felony murder

The sentence is death by lethal injection.

Minimum age for death penalty: 18

Colorado forbids the execution of the mentally retarded.

Executions 1930-1976: 47

Executions since 1977: 1

I'm proud of my state. If you're going to have the death penalty, at least make it sensible, and not some shit where they'll let you hang a mentally retarted sixteen year old, right?
