  • The capital punishment issue.

    This episode made a good point in showing the complexity of the death penalty issue. It is not that easy to decide to put someone on death row There are several instances, though, participating in the final decision, you are being one of them, with the possibility you are not absolutely sure you're doing the right thing, with the chance you needn't be completely convinced the offender deserves such a punishment.
    There's no death sentence where I live, and I am happy for that, although there are a lot of those who might deserve it. But the possible abuse or mistake in the capital case are irreversible. So I wish I never were on a wrong place, in a wrong time and in a wrong state.
