I had for a long time been a proponent of the death sentence.
Over the years, it wasn't just a casual consideration that brought into focus what is more of an appropriate punishment for a heinous crime such as murder or other violent acts that leave so many scarred forever. It seemed that a logical non emotional solution was simply removing the offender from the face of the the earth forever. Punishment that seemed so easily to fit a crime that cannot ever be properly redeemed.
An eye for an eye as it has been explained.
And the left has cried foul over the death penalty for those found guilty forever. They have exclaimed "Thou hypocrites! When dost think it be right to murder a man for his deed, when crying foul for our murder of innocence in the womb?" "Do you so despise life as much as we?!"
hate to say it. Good point. Better to let them claim the role as purveyors of wrongful death.
But still ..
Michigan, by statute in 1846, abolished the death penalty. In 1964, it constitutionally prohibited it. And one must ask if life in prison is really a better fate than a merciful death. Especially when that life is especially long.
