86. The death penalty should never, ever be used
except in cases like McVeigh or those like the subject of the original post. The death penalty should never be used without conclusive scientific evidence. Now that science has surpassed "eye witness" testimony, the likelihood of the death penalty's misuse is minimal. Before any accused is put to death, a complete review of all evidence is just. If that evidence is not supported by science, the death penalty should be reduced to life.

Killing of innocents is astronomically unlikely. Killing or imprisoning an innocent person is never, ever okay.

I just hope you are never a victim. My money says you will be singing a very different song.
