Death penalty

Last week, the Miami Herald reported on a meeting of Florida state legislators who supposedly were trying to determine the most reasonable and just way to deal with the state’s death penalty law. (Needed fixes to Florida’s death penalty law remain elusive, Feb. 10)

They included in their discussion members of families who had a loved one murdered.

This made a mockery of what was supposed to be a sincere effort to find the truth. It would have been hard to find any people less able to be objective in their thinking.

If my daughter were murdered, I would feel like personally administering a painful death to the murderer.

But, it’s possible that I might be a little biased.
