 Death Race - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
While not the first violent video game to appear, it was the first video game to inspire a great deal of protest and controversy, or moral panic, in the United States.
In the game, designed by Howell Ivey and inspired by the 1975 cult film Death Race 2000 by Roger Corman (starring David Carradine and Sylvester Stallone), one or two players control an onscreen car (two cars if two players played) with a steering wheel and an acceleration pedal.
In spite of Exidy president Pete Kaufman's denial that the intent of the game was to promote violence, Death Race touched off a media onslaught of controversy.

 ABA Focus Vol. XII, Number 2 -- The Death Penalty: Race and the Death Penalty
There is no such thing as a race neutral decision in the criminal justice system, when it affects fl people and when their voice is not part of the discussion leading to the decision.
There are differences in the magnitude of race effects at different decisionmaking levels in the states -- i.e., prosecutorial decisions to seek the death penalty and jury decisions to impose death.
The risk of race effects was very low in the most aggravated capital cases; however, in the mid-range cases, where the "correct" sentence was less clear, and the room for exercise of discretion much broader, the race disparities are much stronger.

A number of other states have found jurors are influenced by the race of the victim, meaning they are most likely to sentence to death a fl man who kills a white victim.
Death sentences were imposed on 50 of the 147 defendants -- 28 were fl, 22 were not.
The 28 fls ordered to die constituted 13.79 percent of the 203 death eligible fl defendants, while the 22 nonfl defendants given the death penalty were 13.84 percent of the 159 of those eligible.

 The Physician and Sportsmedicine: The Risk of Death in Running Road Races
Race directors of the 20 largest 10K races, the 10 largest 12Ks, the 12 largest 15Ks, and the 20 largest half marathons were sent questionnaires regarding their races from 1996 through 2000.
The number of deaths expected is the number expected at the different race distances (and the total for all races) if the risk of death in marathons and the shorter road races were the same.
The three deaths for which information was available were from CAD, and the circumstances (during a road race) and limited data (elevated risk based on age) on the other two deaths also appear to be consistent with this as a cause.

 Death Race 2000 [1975] - Review @ EOFFTV
The world of the Transcontinental Road Race is a bleak nightmare, a place where the only people who know what they're doing are the homicidal road racers and where well-placated citizens will gladly lay down their lives for the good of the Race.
Death Race 2000 is a B-movie with a brain, an exploitation film with something to say, questioning America's fascination with violence and control and its reliance on television for information and education.
Bartel himself tried to repeat the success of Death Race 2000 with the altogether tamer and more forgettable Cannonball [1976], a non-fantasy quickie set in 70s America which lacked the acerbic wit of Death Race 2000 and was filled to overflowing with pointless cameos.

 Death Penalty Paper
The death penalty debate in the U.S. is dominated by the fraudulent voice of the anti-death penalty movement.
Death penalty opponents spend millions of dollars and countless man hours fighting the legal execution of, at most, 56 of our worst human rights violators per year, when they do nothing to fight for the end of those inhumane parole and probation release policies which result in the needless injury and slaughter of the innocent.
Death Penalty opponents claim that there is a "brutalization effect" with executions, meaning, that executions show a low regard for human life and do, thereby, cause an increase in the murder rate.

Moreover, a societal consensus that the death penalty is disproportionate to a particular offense prevents a State from imposing the death penalty for that offense.
Furman held that the death penalty "may not be imposed under sentencing procedures that create a substantial risk that the punishment will be inflicted in an arbitrary and capricious manner." This emphasis on risk acknowledges the difficulty of divining the jury's motivation in an individual case.

She asks for the death penalty in all cases in which it could be supported by the statute.
These constraints on the death penalty is why Attorney General John Ashcroft snatched "Beltway snipers" John Allen Muhammad and John Lee Malvo (Malvo is a juvenile) right out of their Maryland jail cells and awarded them to Virginia jurisdictions, a move that he admitted was designed to insure that they died for their alleged crimes.
