I was a little 'wishy washy' on this question, as I thought the book leaned in both directions at different times................ I've cited an article below that should help you with this question.


Capotebrought the idea of the death penalty to the forefront of the national conscience. His presentation of the facts and humanization of the killers caused society to re- evaluate their stance on the death penalty.
