I don't have a moral problem with the state taking a guilty person's life. But, it is use of the death penalty that bothers me. The fact that a murderer in TX is far more likely to die for his crime than the same man in KS bugs me. Where is the 14th Amendment?
When we consider that a poor young black man would be far more likely to be put death for murder than a middle class white woman who commits the same murder--where is the equality in that justice?
As long as cannot guarantee that all those sentenced are given the same, equal, unbiased justice, I can't support a punishment that results in the death of the condemned.
