No, I don't support the death penalty, but life in prison sounds like a pretty good punishment for a lot of people. And I absolutely
think that we're much too nice in a lot of prisons.
I really don't put much importance on the issue of the death penalty, since it pales in comparison to a lot of other issues out there that need to be fixed coughabortioncough
. But this isn't the place to talk about that. Looking at this issue on its own, I don't think that taking someone's life is the right thing to do as punishment, but I'm not going to cry over someone who's murdered numerous people, among other crimes.
