In general, I’m not in favor of the death penalty…

October 7th, 2008

…but I make two exceptions:

  1. At the time of the crime when the intended victim kills his or her attacker.
  2. Anyone who kills a kid.

    I don’t get the first one – sounds like you’re okay with executing an intended victim who was acting in self-defense. I know that can’t be what you mean.

    I can see where that would be confusing.

    I meant that I’m OK with a criminal getting killed (executed) by his intended victim at the time of the attempted crime.

    Does that make more sense?
