I'd take death over prison for life as well, but so many criminals fight for life in prison when on death row, I'm inclined to believe we are in the minority.

No, I think you'd take prison for life over the death penalty when it came down to it. Because being alive, in a lousy place is better than being dead in any place. And that's a simple fact of how people think.

The death penalty is the final tool society uses to end horrible criminals, warn others, and deal with evil in their midst.

I'm with Kevin if I really knew that I wasn't getting out. I wouldn't want to live in a cage. The thing that makes them choose life is the slim hope of freedom. You never know. Prisoners have been freed on technicalities and after catastrophes, natural and political. For some of them, though, life in prison might actually be better than what they had on the streets.

Yikes! A new study shows "each execution results in five fewer homicides, and commuting a death sentence means five more homicides."

/a. heh. oops!
