Death or not
We're studying the death penalty in my class about proposed amendments to the constitution. I'm sure most of the members in my class are against it. We probably wouldn't put it this way, but I bet we think that the death penalty is one of those things that happen in "bad" states. The ones where we don't want to live.
Whenever I think about the death penalty, I remember that debate between Michael Dukakis and George Bush. "What would you do if your wife were raped and murdered?" It was so unfair to spring that on Dukakis, And yet, even though I am against the death penalty, I don't know how I would have phrased an answer on the spot.
Revenge is a mighty temptress.
