The other night my dad and i were watching the news. There was a story about an 80-something year old grandmother who had been bashed and left for dead. As the story finished my dad said ‘It’s stories like these that make me want the death penalty’. It made me think. I’ve never liked the death penalty. I’ve always thought it extreme, like why would we kill people who kill people to show people that killing is wrong? If you kill someone for murder, then aren’t you murdering them and therefore, with your rules, you should be killed. It’s a vicous (Sp?) circle. I always get sad when i hear that people have been sentenced to death. It’s such a waste of a life. Why should we snub out someones life because of one mistake? They could have been destined to be a saint, or a president or someone who could rock this world. The Bali nine (pictured) don’t deserve to die. It was a stupid spur of the moment mistake they made. Now they have no future, no hopes of a family, nothing. The death penalty is a life waster. It’s sad that in this day and age, it’s still around. What do you guys think?
love and stayin alive,
