Abolish the death penalty in California?
Death penalty deters crime before it happens. In the hispanic news channel Univision 54 the news says that a gang member who shot a football player wearing a red T-shirt team uniform, he shot him to death and was sentence to death row. Just after the news coem saying that 45% of Ca voters are in favor ot abolish the death penalty..
Where will justice come from now? Will people just feel more free to kill? They will get only life in prison with parole after the 25th year with work and good behavior.
I just cannot agree with the death penalty. I have always felt that life in jail should mean just that. The only way you leave your cell is feet first in a pine box. To me this is preferrable to executing even one innocent man. Lately, there have been more and more innocent people on death row being freed. If we have already executed them when they are found innocent, what do we do then? "Oops, we seem to have made a mistake," seem rather inadequate.
That is why the cases that are elegible for death penalty are very rare and very few. The sentence is reviewed over 2 years several times just to ensure no mistakes were made. Life in prison is expensive, everyone gets parole after 1/3 of sentence.
I honestly don't believe most criminals think about punishments before committing a crime. Texas actually puts their death penalty to work and yet there are still murders that take place in that state.
One of the reasons so many states are re-thinking the death penalty is because of DNA. There seems to be several intances where "convicted" people have been exonerated after serving many years in prison or sitting on death row for crimes they did not commit. It's the old saying, "Better to let a guilty man go free than to put an innocent one to death."
On a related subject I see the irony that a lot of "pro-life" people are also against euthanasia but they are "pro-death penalty" while a lot of "pro-choice" people are pro euthanasia and anti- dealth penalty. For those that use religion to support there thoughts the bible simply states; "Thy shall not kill" (There are no asterisks) on The 10 Commandments. Naturally we all "cherry pick" the verses we agree with and ignore the rest. :-)
The bible also says in Roms13 that God has served his justice among authorities to punish and enforce law. True many people still murder but , most murders avoid the death penalty by cooperating with police to find the body and bring peace to family
