Jim Wooten on the death penalty.
We can either accept that juries reflect the will of the people and, therefore, disparities that superficially appear “arbitrary” will result. Or we can change the system.

The death penalty is strong stuff. I seriously question that our judicial system is capable of handling it. While some crimes are horrendous, I feel that, overall, we would be better off without it.
