Most Americans support the death penalty, at least judging by the votes for such topics (even in places like New York) and polls, if you trust them. Don't project your personal misgivings about justice to other people.

There's nothing more barbaric about executing some monster than supporting his life until he dies anyway in captivity.

Be fair here. I didn't say most Americans oppose the death penalty. I said capital punishment is so unusual that most Americans are surprised when it's actually carried out.

I personally think killing prisoners, even convicted murderers, is wrong. I believe killing Saddam was wrong. I also believe that what he did was at least 2 million times worse.
