The Death Penalty is immoral

Posted in Politics at 7:04 pm by Nova Newcomer

The United States should be ashamed of ourselves for maintaining the death penalty. Maybe the nation will finally wake up to this shame and we will have a nationwide moratorium once more. Our justice system is not fair, thus a final and irreversible punishment such as death should not be allowed. Lethal injection is supposed to be painless and humane, but recently it has proven to be both psychologically and physically painful for the condemned.

Read the below story on a recent case in Florida. Jeb Bush has authorized many executions as the governor of Florida, though not as many as his brother George W. while he was governor of Texas. (It pains me to even recognize that he was a governor, no less the President of the United States.)

It’s time that the US joined the crowd on this one…
