Gregg v. Georgia - Opinion Announcement of the Supreme Court says: "Mr. Speaker: Justice Stewart. Argument of Justice Stewart Mr. Stewart: In the first of these cases, Troy Leon Gregg, the petitioner, against the state of Georgia, there is no opinion for the Court, however Mr. Justice Powell, Mr. Justice Stevens and I have filed a joint opinion with the Clerk this morning, which because of the divisions among the court, is the prevailing decision. In summarizing our opinion in this case I speak as much for Mr. Justice Powell and Mr. Justice Stevens as I do for myself this is I say is a joint opinion. The issue in this case is whether the impositions of the sentence of death for the crime of murder under the law of Georgia violates the Eight and Fourteenth amendments. The petitioner Troy Gregg was charged with committing armed robbery and murder. In accordance with Georgia procedure and capital cases, the trial was in two stages: a guilt stage and a sentencing stage. The evidence for the prosecution at the guilt stage established that on November 21st, 1973 the petitioner murdered and robbed two men in Gwinnett County, Georgia, and the jury at the end of the trial found that the petitioner guilty on two counts of armed robbery and murder.
Furman v. Georgia Furman was burglarizing the home of a family and tripped and fell and incidentally killed a resident of the family. He was convicted of murder and sentenced to death. Question: Does the imposition and carrying out of the death penalty constitute cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments? Conclusion: Yes. In the Court's one-page per curiam opinion, they believed that the imposition of the death penalty constituted cruel and unusual punishment and violated the Constitution. The Court's decision forced states and the national legislature to rethink their statutes for capital offenses to assure that the death penalty would not be administered in a capricious or discriminatory manner. Gregg v Georgia Gregg was found guilty by trial of jury of armed robbery and murder and sentenced him to death. Question: Is the imposition of the death sentence prohibited under the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments as "cruel and unusual" punishment? Conclusion: No. In a 7-to-2 decision, the Court held that a punishment of death did not violate the Eighth and Fourteenth Amendments under all circumstances. In extreme criminal cases, such as when a defendant has been convicted of deliberately killing another, the careful and judicious use of the death penalty may be appropriate if carefully employed. In Furman, precedent was set because as the result of death from the accident while in the act of robbery, the court interpreted the Eighth and Fourteen Amendment in this case as cruel and usual punishment due to the fact it was unfortunate, but it was discriminatory to the convicted. However, in Gregg V Georgia, precedence was set in this case as well but under different circumstances. During the armed robbery, the crime was also committed during a armed robbery, but it was deemed committed as a deliberate act of killing another human, and the court interpreted the Eighth and Fourteen Amendment applying that it does not constitute cruel and unusual punishment as along the death penalty is employed appropriately without discrimination. So, basically, the court ruled that depending on the circumstances, the cruel and unusual punishment should be applied differently and without discrimination.

Because the federal government has no authority to interfere in marriage. It is NOT mentioned in the Constitution of the United States so it is a STATE responsibility. Read the Tenth Amendment.
