Ben Carson on Capital Punishment

Carson believes the death penalty should be decided on a state by state basis.

JAKE TAPPER: Thank you so much for doing this we appreciate it. So you were in the chamber when the pope addressed this joint meeting of Congress. He had a lot to say about a lot of topics. One of them was life. I know you agree with the pope when it comes to protecting life at all stages starting at conception. I don’t know your position on the death penalty, which the pope spoke about at length. Do you agree with him?

BEN CARSON: I think the death penalty is something that should be decided in a civil matter with the people in the area.

TAPPER: So a state by state decision?

CARSON: Absolutely.
