as a juror in a case where the death penalty is a possible choice.

To me, this seems wrong, in that I am part of the whole population of "peers" of the accused.
If a large portion of society does not believe in imposing the death penalty and are thus disqualified from serving, the accused is not getting a true cross-section of his/her "peers".
