I don't like evil people living, but also hate governments deciding who lives and dies.

Good maybe we can start cleaning up the prisons instead of leaving to rot in a jail for 30+ years.

The death penalty is an archaic system of revenge that should have been eliminated years ago. If you have seriously not gotten past that stage, you aren't worth the skin you wear.

Just a coincidence that death penalty is resuming while investigation into "russia hoax" and epstein comes under way? AG Bar instructed prisons to resume executions; he also appointed John Durham to investigate the origins of "russia hoax", after potus granted bar declass authority over DNI. Public needs to "warm" up to executions again before we move to treason and pedophiles. Hollywood and Washington in panic mode

From the Reuters story: "Of those 62, 41.9 percent are black, 43.6 percent are white, 11.3 percent are Latino, and Asians and Native Americans each make up 1.6 percent of the federal death row population." Democrats still claim "racial bias." 🤣

Regardless of if you agree with the death penalty or not, I really recommend look up what the experience the lethal injection creates. It is not gently slipping away as it appears on the outside, it's apparently So horrific that there have been inmates who opted for the electric chair instead.

The point of a “Correctional Facility” is to correct behaviors in deviants. And there are way too many people in them. But killing another human being is going to fix things? Killing is going to bring back the people that they killed? And if you are falsely accused, you get to be killed? This is supposed to reduce the number of murders in this country? Well it WON’T. These people in Trump’s administration, including Trump himself, are MURDEROUS PSYCHOPATHS!!! They want to go to war with countries for their resources, they support illegal settlements and the bulldozing of innocent people’s homes in Israel, they support our troops getting killed and maimed overseas...

Categorically the worst thing this guy has done this far. I don't trust anyone with the power to decide which citizens should and should not die.
