Response to Aristus (Reply #14)

28. I have a lot of empathy for many people and conditions

but in this case, I am reserving my empathy for other situations. There is so much heartbreak here that no course of action is restorative in the short term. There will be other cases where the death penalty is a clear miscarriage of justice. In this case, I don't think it diminishes the state to choose execution. I don't know if there is a path to greater justice for this tragedy, no matter what we collectively choose.
