My NAY! is not a typical modern response: I am not standing on high moral ground looking down on those who support the death penalty. My NAY is based on what I understand, as does anyone with eyes to see, a justice system that incarcerates & executes minority people at a horrifyingly higher percentage than white people charged with similar or worse offenses. Of course it is unspeakable when judges or police are targeted. Still, they chose dangerous work that deals with the violent part of society. No sane person would fail to condemn the person who murdered any individual police officer or judge but they live in a world where they preach personal responsibility. They made a choice & need to take responsibility for their choices. Executing their murderers will not bring them back. It doesn't take a Ph.D. to see that this is yet another way in which to justify! killing American citizens who are part of a minority out of fury & vengeance.
