I am fundamentally against the death penalty. I don't trust even our fairly good judicial system to get it right often enough. I am to afraid of the number of death penalties that cannot be overturned if found to be wrong. I say this even though I knew a police officer killed by a gangster named Adrian Camacho that will sit on death row for longer than most people live naturally. It is pathetic because this one really deserves it and there is no doubt he did it.
I think the prison sentence should be made as uncomfortable as possible. I like the idea of no entertainment, nothing but 4 white walls and their naked body. What more does the prisoner deserve?
