THE ANSWER TO CAPITAL PUNISHMENT
THERE IS NO ANSWER
As a liberal caring person that attempts to follow the teachings of the Buddha, I abhor the state executions of human beings. Any incident of people executed by a government is a crime against humanity. Even though it is kept secret – removed from the view of the public – it is still barbaric; whether administered by hanging, stoning, beheading, shooting, electric chair, boiling in oil, dismembering or lethal injection.
The prisoner recently executed in the state of
was sentenced to death as the result of a home invasion where he raped a young
girl, shot her and then buried her alive.
Had this happened to someone I cared for I would gleefully kill him
myself – slow and painfully. Oklahoma
