People ask me why I oppose the death penalty
I say “because of the inevitability that we’ll convict and execute an innocent person, which is both morally wrong and absolutely avoidable”.
The reply is “give me some reasons to believe that could ever happen”.
“But they were never executed! The system works!”
“Well, not for this guy. They’re down to arguing over which judge has the legal standing to declare him innocent, which is welfare for lawyers, and is just delaying the inevitable; crap science and incompetent, lazy prosecutors killed an innocent man. So what do we do about that?”
“Cut down on frivolous appeals!”
