The death penalty.....

Irrespective of the horror of a crime, I am not a supporter of the death penalty in any circumstance. The state should an entity whose function is to protect life not to be intimately involved in ending it. However, for those that have argued with me about this, it is important to note that the state is charged with defense and this includes performing war. This legitimate function of the state and this may end in death for some.
