    I'm a right winger, I don't support the death penalty.

    And not because occasionally the wrong person gets killed, either. I think all humans have value to God, and I think all humans should have every opportunity to repent and be saved.

    They can't do that if they're dead.

    death penalty pro: should scare people into not killing other people
    death penalty con: making mistakes and killing innocent people happen

    personal verdict: undecided.

    Right now there isn't much of one. There's an ongoing investigation that "may" have some relation to three executed people and four on death row. May not have any bearing on them either. But they should put a moratorium in until they find out.

    most death row inmates have decades before the switch is flipped.

    plenty of time to repent and be saved.

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.....let's just ignore the fact there're law-enforcement folks & prosecutors who take a few liberties, when Life In Prison or Death are the final-verdict.

    It's kinda like Constitutional Rights, where.....when Homeland Security was first-invented, there were those who suggested some Rights were being jeopardized/suspended (for "security"-reasons), and more-"conservative" people insisted "If you're doing nothing wrong, what're you worried-about????"

    :rolleyes:
