But I'd be wrong. We shouldn't be allowed to decide who dies and who doesn't. That's why I think governments need to have an outright 'no death penalty' law so that people can't make emotion fuelled decisions to send people to death. There are certain issues that I simply can't look at rationally and objectively. That's where unambiguous laws with a strong foundation in human rights and ethics are important. To protect us from making bad decisions when we switch to vigilante mode.
