Cruel? Unusual?, You Decide on the Death Penaltyby Ross R. Olney
When you execute a man or woman, you end their life. You take away all that they really have. And it is YOU that is pulling the switch or injecting the poison, since it is ultimately the people who decide on using or not using the death penalty. The courts have been struggling with this decision for decades, but it will always be the voice of the people making the final decision. Nor is it really possible to execute the "really bad" criminals and not the "kind of bad" ones. Murder is murder. They did it, now the law will do it to them. And the law is you. And what if they are found later to be innocent? That is your problem as well. This book pulls no punches. It is hard hitting, and not for the weak of spirit. It doesn't tell you what it thinks you should do, but it does hit you with a tough question.
