Humans behave like animals
Re: The debate of death, June 2 – 8
The argument against the death penalty is that an innocent person could die. Yes, it has happened. But these days forensic science can reduce that probability. But lawyers and judges, and juries can be persuaded otherwise (OJ Simpson). There was a saying once, I think, that better nine guilty go free than one innocent should suffer. These days I’m not sure about that. Humans are animals. They behave like animals, whether on drugs or booze. But some humans are beyond the pale. They do cold blooded murder for their own gratification. I don’t have an answer for all this. It is a legal, social and political thing. What I do know is that more people think that the death penalty should be an option.
