Re: death penalty

I live in a state that executes more people than most countries and where the entire process has been "streamlined" to kill more prisoners more quickly, providing less opportunities for appeals and removing more barriers what would have previously spared someone from execution.

It hasn't stopped crime at all. It hasn't improved the quality of life of the citizens and certainly hasn't reduced prison populations any. I have very mixed feelings about it, but to be honest, I think, at its core, it's little more than regulated savagery.
