The death penalty is an absolute disgrace. For one, it does not have the intended effect of dissuading others from doing the same types of crimes, if
it did then nobody would be on death row. Secondly, too many innocent people have fallen victim to it, having been executed themselves or having spent
decades behind bars for a crime they did not commit.
I tend to think that those people who do support the death penalty are simply vicariously living out their own murderous fantasies by advocating for
the deaths of others.
I could go on and on for another 3 pages about my thoughts on the issue but I'll leave it there.
