Agree about the video!
The death penalty isn't about 'justice', it's solely about state sanctioned revenge and retribution. It only "deters" the specific individual killed by the state. It's a barbaric idea practiced by practically no other civilized society.
That said, I support the death penalty in certain instances. Like the Boston Marathon bomber. Or the Denver theater shooter. In "obvious" and well-proven and confessed mass murder instances, execute 'em. As well as serial killers and serial rapists. I'm all for the revenge in those instances.
Yes, I am a study in contradictions.
