I’m sure you’re not talking about me since I know I haven’t said anything remotely like that since I started reposting, and I don’t think I’ve ever said that in quite that way, but I understand the sentiment.
From my point of view, the death penalty is a very imperfect thing. Too many innocent people get executed (if one does, that’s too many) and too many guilty people skate from it.
So, the sentiment that I have is that I shed no tears when someone like that creepy fucker in Florida who buried that little girl alive after raping her for three days chews on some juice. However, if the death penalty was not an option, I would be fine with him rotting in jail until he dies too.
So for me it’s not the death I’m morally opposed to, it’s the penalty.
