Phil Bredesen on Crime

Democratic TN Governor


Supports the death penalty

Supporting the death penalty: I believe alleged criminals are entitled to due process under the law and I support lawful executions to punish the most violent offenders.

Supports fair and accurate executions

Phil believes execution is the appropriate punishment for certain crimes. As governor, Phil will not stand in the way of lawful executions in Tennessee, but when government has the authority to take someone’s life, Phil knows that government must do everything possible to assure that the right person is convicted and the legal process is fully and fairly exhausted.
