An older Colson article....
I support the death penalty due to the proven 0% recidivism rate of criminals who are 'rehabilitated' into productive fertilizer by lethal injection, Ol' Sparky, lead poisoning, & etc.
"No authority that I know of denies the 2,000-year-old tradition of the church approving capital punishment," Justice Scalia said. "I don't see why there's been a change."

So, has this guy ever had anyone he knows killed by these poor, misunderstood prisoners on death row? Does he want to chance these poor, misunderstood guys might do it again if given a chance?
I used to be very pro-death penalty. Because of personal experiences with corrupt prosecutors and judges who aren't interested in justice, I would vote no on the death penalty. i have no religious of philisophical opposition to the death penalty. If a person is later found to be innocent, death is too late to make a correction.
