The Death Penalty

When we as a society punish by death, we descend into the brutal mindset of what we as a civilized society profusely detest. Where is the moral culpability and compass, of society when it has clearly fallen below the constitutional standards of human decency and dignity for human life? Society can not fall into the mindset of the perpetrators. No... the practice of murdering our own citizens under the mantel of justice is just not compatible with the constitutional standards and commitment to human dignity. When we murder the murderer, to prove the point that murdering is not acceptable, how much further do we slip into the deplorable mindset of the criminal? Do we then begin to rape the rapist? And turn that the viewing spectacle that we've turned the death penalty into? Really how much further can we fall backwards into the criminally insane mind of the killer or rapist? Because let's face the truth, a one hundred percent "sane individual" is not going to take a life. Those who have done so, have some type of deep-seeded mental problems. Whether society wants to admit it or not. One day, probably not in this lifetime, studies are going to show, that we have been executing the mentally ill under the false pretense of justice. Yes, today's society is lost in the mindset of the vengeful killer, and thus disregards the constitutional standards of human dignity and decency. Let us evolve into the standards for which we are aiming for. To do this, we need to abolish capital punishment. May God bless you all, and lead you to the realization that violence breeds violence and two wrongs will never make it right.

The Death Penalty
A rich man will walk
, and a poor man will die
and America will scream
But only a poor mother will cry,
for a rich woman's son...
will never die!
