Writer's Block: Capital offense

What is your opinion of the death penalty? How important is this issue in deciding which political candidates you support?

I'm very much against it. I'm very much against punishment as part of the justice system anyway. If someone poses a serious danger to society, then there's a case for incarcerating them, but I also believe that should be ideally with a view to their eventual rehabilitation back into society. Sure, that's not always going to be possible, but I think it's a good goal to strive for - better that either "string 'em up" or "lock 'em up and throw away the key."
