Debating the death penalty

Dear Editor

Re: Machete attacker appeals sentence

Oh, I know there have been innocent people executed because of our flawed system, false testimonies, corrupt prosecutors, incompetent attorney representation etc. This is why I don’t want the death penalty for ANY other crime except CHILD MOLESTATION!

When ever I hear these stories, I have a very vivid picture in my head of the child crying out in silence while they are being violated! I want to scream for that child because the innocence has just been stolen from them......I CANNOT begin to imagine what goes on in their innocent minds...I CANNOT!.......What can you say except to hold them tight with all of your might and wish you could transfer their pain to you!.......Oh, I’m sick! There is NO EXCUSE for this act! NONE! Sorry this one you’re NOT going to get an agreement from me. And yes, I would debate you till the cows come home on this issue!
