Pope Francis: No death penalty!

2014-10-23

While speaking before the International Association of Criminal Law, Pope Francis denounced political corruption. He compared it to someone who has bad breath. He explained that while it may be difficult for that person to  notice it, those around him or her,  recognize it immediately. 

The Pope spoke out against political complicity, where all the power is concentrated in one source. 

He also warned against those who use politics and the media to incite violence and to lay blame on others. 

POPE FRANCIS
"The reality shows that the existence of legal instruments and necessary policy to confront and resolve conflicts, do not offer sufficient guarantees to prevent individuals from being blamed for everyone's problems.”

Pope Francis also denounced that some governments ilegally sentence people to death. He described those actions as 'deliberate homicides.' 

Lastly, the Pope talked about prisons. He said that in some countries, having prisons in deplorable conditions, is the norm. He said that in some cases,  this is the result of an 'arbitrary and merciless exercise of power.'
