No, definitely not. That's a major consideration that keeps me from committing to a vote on either side of this. However, if he was sentenced to die, I would support that without reservation. I see that as almost being more humane than blinding him with acid. I think I'd prefer death if I were him.
Before you criticize someone you should walk a mile in their shoes, that way when you do criticize them you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
