Nobody’s excusing the crime. I just see it as very hypocritical to kill a killer.
‘It’s OK if I do it. I’m the president.’ And then they turn to us to talk up their Christian credentials.
No argument from me.
No. But I don’t view life in prison to be a lesser punishment. I don’t think prisoners should be killed. We also don’t have a clean record and have executed innocent people in the past. Does executing the prisoner somehow return the victim? Does the eye-for-an-eye revenge bring happiness to the victim’s family?
Capital punishment is barbaric…if you ask me.
