Jasper, Texas Racist Killer To Die for Dragging African-American Man Behind Truck
Have you ever noticed how the most rabid supporters of the death penalty are Tea Partiers and evangelical Crusters? I don't care what the Jasper man did or to whom, I am against capital punishment. Capital punishment is cruel and unusual. It is also immoral and unethical. None of the reasons given by its apologists is valid. For example, it costs more to appeal than to keep the person in prison terminally (try a three- squares budget of about fifty cents a day), and in a majority of cases the killer will never do it again (usually, he knew the victim). We are the only civilized democracy that takes a life for taking a life. Only in mathematics -- and using imaginary numbers at that -- do two wrongs ever make a right.
