I believe in the death penalty, but ONLY for the worst of the worst... which it was originally intended for. Child rapists/murders, multiple murders, serial murders, any murder with torture. The problem with the death penalty, and life in prison sentences that boils my blood, is that if DNA is found AFTER a conviction...the courts will refuse to let it be tested. Can you imagine being innocent of a horrific crime, but convicted, and DNA was found and there would be NOTHING you could do about it, to be tested? How disgusting is our judicial system that they could care less about the truth with DNA? Thank goodness we have the Innocence Project, that will fight tooth and nail on cases they find unjust. But they only can take a few cases out of thousands. Jeffery Dahmer didn't even get the death penalty...well...he did in prison.
