This *is* what they voted for, after all.
No, I'd say it's more analagous to saying they should *watch* the criminal in jail. On TV.

I did not go so far as to spout the "don't vote for the death penalty if you're not prepared to pull the switch yourself" line, which would be more analagous to what you propose, wouldn't you say?
