Abstract:

The death qualification process has been criticized because it tends to eliminate certain groups of individuals. This study examined whether the process systematically excludes jurors based on religious characteristics, justice philosophy, cognitive processing, and demographics. Death qualification can be predicted by religious affiliation, devotionalism, fundamentalism, and Biblical interpretism; but not evangelism. Death qualification is predicted by the belief that murderers deserved to die, but not by beliefs that criminals deserve mercy, forgiveness, or payback. Neither need for cognition or faith in intuition predicted death qualification. Finally, gender and race predicted death qualification, while age and prior jury duty did not.
