85. to murder someone as a penalty for murder is wrong
what message does that send?

I've never understood the logic behind the death penalty, other than it gives the state the "right" to kill it's own subjects.

To want to expand the state's "right" to murder is incomprehensible to me, and "disconcerting" barely covers how I feel about Obama's reaction to the Supreme Court ruling.
