Death penalty in Native America
Kirby Cleveland, a Navajo man, faces a possible death sentence if convicted on charges he killed a Navajo Nation police officer last year. If Cleveland is sentenced to death, he would join 26 other Native Americans on death row, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. The Navajo Nation is against the death penalty. Tribes do not execute prisoners and some have laws against capital punishment, like the Navajo Nation. Does capital punishment serve a purpose in Native America?
