Death and justiceBy Shawn Allen Seaforth, Ont.
As a Canadian, I am grateful we do not have the death penalty (“Death Penalty Worth a Struggle,” Editorial, Oct. 3). In the last few years we have had several convicted “criminals” set free because they were wrongly convicted. If we had the death penalty, they would have paid the ultimate price for someone else’s crime. How can we live with state-sponsored “mistake killings”? I dare ask of death penalty supporters, “Do you fight for the wrongly convicted and executed as strongly as you do for the death penalty?”
