Veterans on Death Row

It is estimated that approximately ten percent of the America’s 3000 Death Row inmates are veterans. This panel event exploring Veterans on Death Row on May 24, 6:30pm, will explore the pathology of the condemned veteran population. In particular, the mental health implications of military service and combat will be examined in in light of Supreme Court precedents such as Porter v. McCollum. Among the issues to be discussed will be the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and military culture. The panel will also reflect upon what factors should be considered in determining the appropriate sentence for veterans convicted of capital crimes.
