The following was first posted on KQED-FM Radio's Forum show page, 2015 June 29th (Guest host Joshua Johnson), on the topic:

Supreme Court Rules on Redistricting, Lethal Injection and EPA Air Pollution Limits

Comments Section:

When will we get it? The most compelling moral argument against the death penalty is that the people — represented by the state — should not model or exemplify the very behavior we say we are trying to deter. One can't have it both ways with good moral consistency.

Furthermore, with the death penalty, we kill with pre-meditation in the extreme, whereas most violence is crime of passion and the moment.

The death penalty lowers the whole tenor of the social atmosphere with terrible consequences. In addition to saving lots of money and skilled human attention better set to prevention and restorative justice, we will take a great quantum leap up in the advance of civilization when "We, the People," set a good example and leave violence-as-punishment behind.
