I couldn't be on the jury since I'm not a fan of the death penalty. Even I question my judgement on that since death is so cheap in so many ways all over the world, including here, but still, I don't think a new death fixes anything but a sense of retribution, which could be enough for most people but I'm uncomfortable with it done by the State.
I can understand it, encased as it is in a kind of war on terrorism; just that I don't want to be the judge.
If killing were the answer, I d suggest that, instead of killing the killer, the "system" go after his family .
But if asked which is the crueler punishment...and which is the more humane...
...without a doubt in my mind I would choose death as the more humane and less cruel...
...and life in prison as the more cruel and less humane.

I have presented my anti death penalty pitch on other threads. Basically, it amounts to, I don't trust those in the system to deliver fair trials in far too many cases. Since we can't know who is truly guilty so often, lack of a death penalty gives us a chance to reverse wrong verdicts.
I think itd be way more valuable to lock him in SUpermax and put him in the general population of skinheads
It is possible he may change on his own. I'd rather he not change by force.
