Thank you for this thoughtful article. My only disagreement is with your comment about not being able to end the death penalty....WE WILL END THE DEATH PENALTY because it doesn't work as a deterrent, it is unjustly applied, and it costs way too much money. One day we will look back and wonder why it took us so long to see the light on this issue. Working to elect a D.A. like Kamala Harris of San Francisco, who will not ask for the death penalty, is a great idea...one that leaves the issue in local control. Let's do it!

Why do we kill people who kill people to teach them that killing people is wrong?

You two are mush heads who have clearly never been, or known, a victim of a heinous crime. Some people need to be removed from the gene pool forcibly. Jail just gives them an opportunity to poison other minds and teach. Some, not all, murderers, deserve death. I think we should add rapists and child molestors. If used as intended, it would be a deterent, but with the average death row inmate in CA dying of old age instead of lethal injection, of course it is not a deterent. The mush heads of California will defend the worst criminals we have and plead for their lives...but couldn't care less about the victims, their families, or society. Ok, that is a long enough rant I suppose.
