Nebraskans for the Death Penalty Plans “Repeal the Repeal” Campaign

Lincoln, Neb. – A coalition led by Nebraskans for the Death Penalty will urge voters turning out for the November 2016 general election to keep the death penalty. Plans for the “Repeal the Repeal” campaign will be announced later this year.

Bob Evnen, co-founder of Nebraskans for the Death Penalty, said, “This year Nebraskans will be asked in a historic vote to decide the future of the death penalty in our state. Nebraskans for the Death Penalty will lead a coalition that believes the death penalty is just punishment for the most heinous of crimes, offers protection to public safety officials including correctional officers, serves as a deterrent to unspeakable acts, and protects the public from the most dangerous in our society who have demonstrated a disregard for life. The claim that life in prison is less costly than the death penalty is not supported by the facts, and the idea that a heinous killer can be put behind bars for life without risk of release is dishonest.”

Evnen continued, “We know death penalty opponents have deep pockets and have already hired a large team of political consultants. The fact that they are producing slick television commercials more than nine months before the November election proves that point. But, unbiased public opinion surveys show a large majority of Nebraskans consistently support the death penalty. During the course of this campaign, we have seen a great deal of misinformation about this issue. We look forward to continuing to correct the record and to provide Nebraskans with accurate information.”

Nebraskans for the Death Penalty gathered more than 166,000 signatures in the summer of 2015 to prevent the Legislature’s repeal of the death penalty from becoming law until voters decide whether to retain or repeal the repeal.
