  •  The first sentence of my last paragraph (4+ / 0-)

    shows where I stand. Basically, while I think capital punishment could be an acceptable punishment in principle, I don't think we should use it at all in current practice. Our legal system still has far too much bias (racial and otherwise), imperfection, and error to justify the use of such a "final" sentence.

    But, I don't see the US completely abolishing capital punishment any time soon. Hence the title of my post.
