Re: death penalty
I am against it.
I'm against it. But there are times that my emotions get the better of me and I think they should take someone out and hang them. Especially when the crime involves children.
I certainly understand the emotion
But that's exactly why we have the system we do. So that anger and vengeance do not rule. Let cooler, more objective heads prevail.
In theory, anyway...
“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States...The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge'.” - Isaac Asimov
