3. Just as important is the fact that the death penalty

is a bell that can never be un-rung if you happen to execute someone who is later proven to have been innocent. Supreme Court Justice Scalia has stated in effect that later proof of innocence is not sufficient reason to not execute someone who received a trial by his/her peers. How could anybody approve executing an innocent person?

If you believe in the sanctity of life you cannot then cherry pick who deserves to live and who deserves to die. I am 100% anti death penalty because it diminishes us a civilized society. If you read the comments on the local news websites on tonight's events in Oklahoma you would be appalled at the how blood thirst and vindictive people are. I think that if Mary Fallon had allowed the prison to air the execution on TV, people would have watched it. They don't even realize how close their behavior and attitudes line up with Sharia law at times.
