I guess. Is that a position held by many philosophically against all application of the death penalty, or just by one victim in one instance? I admit I havent' really heard that one before as a general concept.
Seems strange to me since either way the guy is going to be in jail. The only question is whether he's in jail awaiting death by natural causes or death by needle/chair.
