This was a reference to my death penalty comment earlier. I could care less if we have the death penalty or not, but some of the posters seem to agree with beating a man to death that molested their child, while being against the death penalty. Why is that OK but, having a jury of 12 decide to put a man to death so cruel?
My thought is that no one likes the death penalty until it happens to one of their family members being raped or murderd and then its justified.
It's cruel and unusual. The state has no business murdering anyone. The case where the father protected his child is different. He caught the subject while he was engaged in serious sexual assault. By definition of the law he can use deadly force. He did so accidentally.
