The Miami Times: Prof. Deborah Denno Comments On Biden Administration’s Approach to Capital Punishment


Fordham Law Professor Deborah Denno, a criminal law and death penalty expert, is quoted in a Miami Times article describing federal prosecutors decision to seek capital punishment for a white supremacist who killed 10 Black people in Buffalo, NY.

“It’s a mass shooting, and mass shootings have only increased over the years and gotten worse. It was also racially motivated, and that seems to be a huge factor here,” said Deborah Denno, a Fordham University law professor who studies the death penalty. “Garland is sort of indicating what he thinks is important, what would drive him to ask for the death penalty.”
