An eye for an eye, or turning the other cheek?


Speaking of Devil's Kitchen, he and I are involved in an enjoyable spat about capital punishment over at his place.

Or, at least, it would be enjoyable if we weren't talking about an actual man's life. Stanley "Tookie" Williams, convicted for multiple homicide, has spent 25 years on Death Row and may have been executed as I write (given that his fate lies in the hands of The Terminator, I don't hold out much hope). In prison, Williams renounced violence and wrote many books for children, denouncing gang life and trying to ensure that future generations did not go down his path.

Come and join in the debate.
