23. I agree with the above poster
if one of my children is killed, then I would be for the death penalty for the murderer. If one of my children killed someone else, I would be opposed to the death penalty.

I can't get this out of my mind when I think of the death penalty: I remember seeing Mr. Klaus (can't remember his first name) talk about the death penalty for the man who raped, tortured and murdered his little girl. He said the murderer sits in prison every night, and in his thoughts he rapes her, tortures her, and kills her all over again...every night, over and over. Mr. Klaus wants that man dead, so he will stop killing his daughter. I would feel the same.
