Wouldn't that just be the same thing all over again?

sck

It would be, in effect, justifying what the father did.



How so?

The son was seen as committing a heinous crime and the father meted out execution as punishment.

The father has committed a heinous crime, and many are advocating that the state mete out execution as punishment.

As atrocious as acts such as these; e.g. the Shaniya Davis case given that if I were in the same room with the perpetrators, it would take a great deal of restraint to prevent me from eviscerating them; the death penalty affords for little more than emotional catharsis. I does nothing at all to prevent such events from happening again, which would be a productive outcome, IMHO.
And let's face it, execution by lethal injection doesn't even do THAT. (I say that at the risk of this issue becoming my own personal "mandatory accounting"-style obsession. Smile But think about it.)
