You want to ask how I would feel if I were wrongly convicted, well lets put the shoe on the other foot if it were my daughter that Castro abducted I would be miserable with him locked up. I would be hoping like hell that another prisoner would waste his ass in the most brutal fashion.
You're cool with mistakes... even if one of your innocent family members is wrongly killed? Awesome. Why don't we just execute everyone for even the smallest crime? Or how about we start executing people who MIGHT commit a crime in the future?
You gonna use the whole 'gotta break eggs to make omelettes" analogy when that happens?
Or it's only cool so long as the people you don't know are wrongly killed?
Your emotional appeal carries little weight because it can easily be turned around.
I have no sympathy for Castro. The girls were found in his basement. His guilt is not in question. That doesn't change the fact that the position of "I'd rather execute a thousand innocent men than let one walk free" is just about the dumbest thing I've read on the DC forum of Chiefs planet.
