That's what I was thinking...
Let's eliminate violence by systematically killing millions of people. Brilliant.
yes it is brilliant. the death penalty is only effective as a deterrent if it is done properly. either dont use it at all or use it right, and I say use it right. the half azz way we do it now doesnt make any sense. few are deterred by fear of the death penalty but at the same time it is govt sanctioning killing. im fine with that if it acctually deters ppl from undesirable actions but right now it doesnt and in that case id rather see it not used at all.
