20. "telling the people that murder on some level is ok"
I have always thought that the death penalty is equivalent to the government telling its citizens that you resolve problems with violence (actually only one of many ways the current occupiers solve problems with violence). It is teaching us that killing is OK as long as the majority want it and some derive "closure" from it.

I believe the death penalty is a major factor contributing to the sickness of our society. And you have to admit, we are not well.

An eye for an eye leaves everybody blind. - Ghandi
