And so I assume you're cool with the death penalty then? (I'm not trying to stir up debate, I'm just curious). I'm not sure myself of where I stand on it.

I am fine with it in principle, but there have been enough problems with ensuring they have the right guy, and over application of the penalty to minorities and the lower socio economic classes that I am concerned about how it is being used in our society today.

If the authorities could address those problems and ensure it is being practiced fairly and accurately then I would be very much behind it.

Very good point. I think I agree with that. In principle, it makes a lot of sense. But like many things in life, many things good in principle are executed poorly.
