Meanwhile, a law-abiding citizen sits on death row in Mississippi for lawfully defending his home against an intruder, and Hollywood wastes no breath or ink on his cause.
If the facts of this case are accurate as presented in the linked article, this is a true travesty of justice. Although I'm not opposed to the death penalty IN THEORY, it is cases like these that leave me with no choice but to be opposed to the death penalty AS PRACTICED. Our system of meting out punishments is definitely broken. No system can be perfect, but unless and until the system is improved, I simply can't have sufficient faith in the system to endorse capital punishment.
