"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)



Here's a big reason I'm opposed to the death penalty: our state wrongfully convicts people at an alarming rate. In this case, it wasn't a death penalty case, but we took away almost 27 years of an innocent man's life. Should we really be killing people when our criminal justice system is clearly failing many in this respect?

I agree. One innocent person's death is one too many. But I'm opposed to the death penalty for other reasons as well. :)

Oh, right. I probably should have mentioned that my main reason for opposing the death penalty is a belief that decisions about life and death should be left to God.
