The people who say that’s a viable argument, please look at a mother in the eye who has lost a son and say 'you know what, I could have stopped him and I didn't because it costs too much.'My answer? The choice is not death penalty or go free; the choice is death penalty or life in prison without parole. There is no "go free and commit more crimes" option here.
It is time for we, as Americans, to rise above the petty need for revenge.
It is time for us to stand for what is morally correct.
It is time for us to remove the death penalty from our law books.
It is time for the death penalty to die.
