The Death Penalty

December 8th, 2005

I hate it when someone does a better job than I could of expressing MY opinion. Kathleen Parker pretty much said everything that needs to be said about the death penalty in viagra sales treatment 0, viagra generic viagra 4116392.column”>Tookie’s timeout.

In other words… I was for it and now I’m leaning against it.

Of course, if we did decide to get rid of the death penalty, I do have a couple of stray thoughts:

1.) If you commit murder, you automatically get life in prison.

2.) Life in prison means LIFE in prison. No parole. No matter how “rehabilitated” you are.

3.) You work in prison to pay restitution to the family and loved ones of the person you killed AND to reimburse the state for the expense of your incarceration.

Of course, all of the above assumes you’ll survive the crime you try to commit. (For example, attempt to hurt me or someone I love and you won’t be going to prison. You’ll be going to the morgue.)
