1. I detest the media fixation, like the crowds at the Roman Coliseum

It is painful to see this obviously damaged man being circled like a wounded animal. His eyes are so blank...

Killing the mentally ill by the state is really barbaric...it may be a different story during a violent attack situation, but in trial cases it really bothers me...

2. I am still the death penalty

It does not bring the victims back to life. It does not even offer "closure" as has been studied. It may offer a sense of revenge but, while not a legal eagle, this is not the purpose of the legal code.

Surprisingly, I liked George Will's third reasoning: the death penalty does not deter these kind of horrific crimes.
