The standard you cited was:
1: A person who serves no useful purpose on earth and
2: Committed a horrific crime sufficient to put them in jail forever.
What constitutes a horrific crime can vary depending on ones point of
You always manage to find a hook to hang your instinctive contrariness on no matter how tiny and distant that hook is. This isn't about personal opinions or points of view on what constitutes a crime horrific enough to justify capital punishment, this is about *the law* and what it says. The law doesn't say someone who commits a non-capital crime sufficient to be sentenced to life can be executed instead, even if that crime is as horrific as say child sexual abuse. You overlook, accidentally or otherwise, that I also said capital punishment should be reserved for murder (and perhaps treason)--that excludes your claim that I figure anyone in prison for life could or should be executed instead.
Again, you have the right to take a contrary position, but it would be nice if it at least made sense.
