Another argument against the death penalty

I don’t support the death penalty because I think it’s barbaric, but more importantly, it endangers the lives of innocent people.

Human beings are fallible. The justice system makes mistakes. To think otherwise is stupid, except think of a word that means stupid a thousand times over.

I don’t know what that word is, but that’s what I think of the death penalty.

Mistakes happen. They have in the past, and they will again. Innocent people will die at the hands of the state. 

For example:

On this date in 1456, Joan of Arc was declared innocent for heresy.

Unfortunately for Joan, that was 25 years after she was burned at the stake for her crime.
