It is unfortunate that people see the Death Penalty as some type of justice or closure for the victims families. There are not enough words in any language that can begin to describe the pain of losing someone and the lingering pain itself becomes a fixture that can't be replaced. I know what those families feel as I have lost my brother. He and I were very close so it hit me the hardest, despite him being my mother's first born and the only son she bore. After my brother was brutally murdered, I wanted each and every person who took part in his death slowly tortured begging for death, but as the years passed the hurt still remained in the deepest innermost part of my heart, and yet my brother was still gone never to return. Giving these guys a death sentence won't ease my pain, or make me feel better and it definitely won't bring my brother back. A life for a Life isn't justice by any means, but life in prison without parole is a starting point. Prison isn't a luxury that some people make it out to be. The prisoners don't get three meals a day, they don't get to shower everyday and medical attention is a joke at best. They may have tvs, radios, etc. but what good are they, being locked up in an over crowded hot/cold (depending on the weather outside), disease/rat infested cage? For all those who oppose the death penalty reform, they should experience San Quentin's Death Row for an entire month as an inmate and see if justice would be better served by Death. Of course everyone has an opinion, but opinions tend to shift quickly when the Murderer is now part of their family and they don't want to see death imposed on them. Hypocrisy at best when the tables turn, but who am I to judge. #YesOn62 #TheJusticeThatWorksAct #NOon66 There's NO Justice in Murder no matter how you paint the picture.
In the last sentence, you mean: just until you need glasses. lol
