Execution-Inspired Murder: A Form of Suicide?
Van Wormer, Katherine
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v22 n3-4 p1-10 1995
Describes each of 20 cases briefly to show the pattern of killers who committed their crime in order to be executed. Concludes that the death penalty itself can serve as an invitation to murder, and asserts that legislators should vote against the implementation of the death penalty in order to save lives. (JPS)
