''THE DEATH PENALTY'' By Ronald Wayne Clark jr
Ronald Wayne Clark jr, condamned to death
Society can not fall into the mindset of the perpetrators. No... the practice of murdering our own citizens under the mantel of justice, is just not compatible with the constitutional standards and commitment to human dignity. When we murder the murderer, to prove the point that murdering is not acceptable, how much further do we slip into the deplorable mindset of the criminal? Do we then begin to rape the rapist? And turn that the viewing spectacle that we've turned the death penalty into?
Really how much further can we fall backwards into the criminally insane mind of the killer or rapist? Because let's face the truth, a one hundred percent ''sane individual'' is not going to take a life. Those who have done so, have some type of deep seeded mental problems. Whether society wants to admit it or not. One day, probably not in this life time, studies are going to show, that we have been executing the mentally ill under the false pretense of justice. Yes today's society is lost in the mindset of the vengeful killer, and thus disregards the constitutional standards of human dignity and decency.
Let us evolve into the standards for which we are aiming for. To do this, we need to abolish capital punishment.
May God bless you all, and lead you to the realization that violence breeds violence and two wrongs will never make it right.

The Death Penalty
A rich man will walk,
and a poor man will die
and America will scream
''AN EYE FOR AN EYE!''
But only a poor mother will cry,
for a rich woman's son...
will never die!
