The death penalty won't deter crime.
What will deter crime out of our sick society is the death of poverty; especially poverty of the worst kind - the poverty of the mind and heart - the horrors behind our sick system of education.
Indeed, the death of corruption from the college-educated politicians behind the government; and, the death of deception from the college-educated theologians behind the church. Such a transformation should transform our sick and insane society into a decent, sane, well-organized, and a healthy society. - - - Poch Suzara
