ET entry ran yesterday

Forgot to mention that I had an Executed Today entry run yesterday, my first since September. This is a quite ordinary case of wife-murder but I felt compelled to write it up because of the heartbreaking detail about the unborn baby.

    I’ve always noticed how even though you’re opposed to the death penalty, you never let that cause you to minimize, in your ET posts, the heinous way in which the executed may have treated his victim(s) nor necessarily paint the perp in a sympathetic way. That tells me your opinion on the death penalty comes from a well though out, reasoned place, not just a “bleeding heart”. It’s like you’re saying, “this guy was absolute scum, AND by the way, it is unacceptable to execute anyone. BTW, I was on the fence about the death penalty, until some time ago, when I read a blog post you wrote about your cousin? (can’t remember) who said “he must have been guilty of something”. That post, along with the huge number of innocent people who’ve been let out of prison recently after DNA testing, has convinced me how wrong and scary this is. So anyways, long post but thanks for the enlightenment.
