Comments: I May Be Sick

Even if we eliminate the death penalty in the form of state execution, we do still have the death penalty in the form of police.

Of course, I'm not actually opposed to the death penalty per se, but to the way in which it is arbitrarily and often unjustly applied. In cases like this, I don't have the slightest qualm, except that it would have been nice if someone had gotten to him before the police, and before the child was dead. No jury in the world would convict someone taking violent action under those circumstances.
