Tonight's and last week's debate brought up something interesting. Last week, the loudest applause of the night broke out when Brian Williams mentioned the executions of over 200 people in Texas. Tonight people shouted out "yes" to the question "should you let a man who could afford but doesn't by health insurance die?" For example, I agree that the death penalty is correct in some cases, but I do not believe that it is something to be triumphed. Rather, I believe it should only be used as a sort of regretful last resort. Something necessary, but not something to be proud of.
So, the question. Is it right to cheer for people's deaths, even if you agree that the person deserved it?
