The author is not credible.
While it is a .edu site, it is difficult to determine the author s credentials.
While the article is biased in support of capital punishment, its bias is not flagrant or unjustified.
There is not a publication date, and the publication dates of the sources used are not current.

The author of the article is a student; the university just published a student paper on its site. While .edu sites are generally preferred over commercial (.com) sites, the source is not a University publication. The source is biased, but it is not glaringly or grossly biased; its stance is neatly defended. A publication date is not published, and the sources used are not current.
