"Depending on what state you live in, the wrongful conviction rate is between 13% & 25%."

You're gonna hafta cite that.

I think you've just nudged me more toward the "against" side of the fence.


Glad to hear. Part of the libertarian ethos is about restraining government power. It`s important in this case as it tends to harm people it`s not even supposed to target.

@Gerry: Good points. ~pondering~

I'm kind of stuck on what Madduck alluded to earlier though: If, say, my son or daughter were brutally murdered by a serial killer, I`d have a hard time not feeling further victimized every time I saw that person leering from the TV screen in his latest interview or parole hearing, a la Charles Manson.

I'm against the death penalty for 2 reasons.

A: By outlawing it, we as a society have said that deliberately killing a person is wrong. As punishment for this we will kill you. Huh? Hows that?

& 2: Error ratio. Depending on what state you live in, the wrongful conviction rate is between 13% & 25%. That is intolerable. And you cannot apologize after you`ve killed the wrong man, which has happened way too many times. Until we have a reliably accurate court system the death penalty shouldn`t be considered.
