the death penalty debate is talked about.
those who agree with it, those who say that the taxpayers money should just go towards DP (it costs more for those fighting death penalty compared to those with life without parole), how death row/jail is 'comfortable' and all that stuff.
i wonder how many of you people KNOW someone on death row- NOT in jail, not in prison, but death row. i wonder how many of you have loved ones on death row. i wonder if anyone knows of the torment, the angish that the inmate, family and friends suffer through during the trial, during the sentencing, during the time spent behind the bars. i wonder if anyone has ever had to say their final words, their goodbyes to their best friend, their son, daughter, mother, father.... if anyone has watched their loved one getting strapped to the gurney, IVs coming out of the arms.
i've been on both sides of the spectrum. my aunt was murdered and my best friend was on death row so i'm not blind to either situation.
i usually never post topics like this, but for some reason- it got to me today. i dont even reply on death penalty posts that other people make.
i've said my peace and now i'm out.
RIP Joyce and Chris
