185. I have very strong feelings about rapists
I think they should be physically castrated. Not as a deterrent, but as a punishment.

However, I do not think the death penalty is ever appropriate.

How would it have affected you and the rest of your family if you, when you were a child, were called to testify against your grandfather and your testimony led to his receiving the death penalty?

It would actually been his own actions that led to his death, not your testimony, but would you have understood that?

It's a very complicated issue.

I don't think the state should ever be given the right to put its citizens to death.
