In this article "Death Penalty Fast Facts" The author "CNN" informs you about how 20 people were executed in the united states within the year of 2016. And other similar facts.

I believe this article is partially helpful but shouldn't be used completely for a different resource.
The article Part I: History of the Death Penalty, explains and informs in great detail about the history of the death penalty in the united states. This quote "Britain influenced America's use of the death penalty more than any other country." is something i didn't know and this article is full of new facts that a lot of people dont know.

I feel like it loses some credibility because the site is titled "talk death" which is kind of creepy if you think about it if im being honest.
