Do you think the Kansas Legislature should vote to reinstate the death penalty?
Asked at Java Break, 17 E. Seventh St. on February 20, 2005
“No, they shouldn’t. I oppose the death penalty because it is more cost effective to keep people in prison.”
“No. I just don’t believe that putting someone to death is the right way to deal with criminal actions.”
“No, because the death penalty is ineffective in the prevention of crime. The death penalty has often been imposed on the innocent, and there is no appeal for an innocent person who has been executed.”
“Yes. I think it is an appropriate punishment for certain crimes.”
