What purpose does executing a blind, deaf, infirm 76 year old man serve? It doesn’t make us any safer, the punishment is so far removed from the crime that deterrence is a weak argument. Vengeance? For whom? The victims are dead – the immediate relatives are far removed as well.
I see absolutely no benefit from capital punishment and the risks from using it inappropriately are huge. It’s time just to end this anachronism.
