I am reading a column written by Robert L. Jamieson Jr in the Seattle PI. He says that we should not have the death penalty. That we shouldn't be like Texas. We should be like New Jersey. I disagree!
And just so it is VERY CLEAR. I need to say this to you, because after I am dead I cannot speak for myself.
Should I ever get murdered by someone, I want him to receive the death penalty.
Never should I hear (from beyond the grave) someone speaking on my behalf saying I would want the person to have life in prison.
Heck, I will put a provision in my Will that should I be murdered, my estate shall purchase a 10 foot piece of rope which will then be donated to the prison system.
