Misleading statistics are found in every field of human endeavour. There is some elusive quality surrounding death penalty, however, which makes misleading statistics chronic in this field. Perhaps it is because on this issue, to a greater extent than most others, the wish is the father of the thought.The latest entrant to the minefield in this problem area is the article by Zimring, Van Vuren and Van Rooyen which appeared in an earlier issue of this journal.
