GUEST,Strollin' Johnny BS: Capital Punishment? (154* d) RE: BS: Capital Punishment? 19 Dec 03


What concerns me here is that the 'not under any circumstances' brigade all seem to be more concerned about the rights of the murderer than those of his victim. I tried to open this up earlier in this thread but I notice you all carefully ignored it. The TRULY INNOCENT one, the one whose life has been taken, never gets the opportunity of a re-run of his murder so that he might, on the second occasion and with lessons learned from the first occasion, find a way to escape with his life.

Like most, I dislike the idea of a wrongly-convicted person being put to death but, far more, I loathe the idea of the guilty receiving a lesser sentence than that which he meted out to his victim.

Anyone out there got an argument which could persuade me? I won't hold my breath.
