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.
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.
