Letter: Expand, don't eliminate, death penalty
The editors still don't get it. We don't care if capital punishment is a
deterrent to crime. We don't care what the racial or economic status of the
criminal is. It is just punishment and retribution for people who can shoot
a cop and then run him over, shoot cops trying to serve a warrant, and
shoot a defenseless woman and her teenage daughter.
We are not interested in coaxing or cajoling or digging deep into their
psyche. These barbarians must be eliminated, and quickly. The recent court
ruling that jurors are given "too much information" to make a decision in
death penalty cases is ludicrous.
This only adds to our suspicion that justice is a sidebar if it happens,
and extracting money from taxpayers to be redistributed to lawyers' estates
is the primary objective of the system. The death penalty should be
expanded to include child molesters, rapists and home invaders.
I wonder at the moral and psychological makeup of legal professionals and
activists who consistently defend these vermin, while declaring the
destruction of an innocent newborn's brain constitutionally protected.
