The arguments for and against the DP are well known and are pretty much a standard script that can be simply printed out whenever the topic arises. The comments here have actually been refreshingly reasonable--on both sides. I would only like to emphasize that the argument for or against the DP is NOT about the criminal. It is NOT about being "soft on crime". It is a difference of opinion on what is the best choice for the overall benefit of society. As Zorn writes in his column, there are logical, practical reasons to oppose the death penalty without any "bleeding heart" sentiment whatsoever.
