Conor Friedersdorf on The Guillotine

Bring the Guillotine Back to Death Row - Conor Friedersdorf - The Atlantic:
"But to me, that's a point in its favor. Let's have no illusions about what we're doing when the state carries out the killing of captive prisoners. I imagine support for the death penalty would decline rather quickly once heads started rolling. "

I have in the past called Conor some uncomplimentary things but I found myself agreeing wholeheartedly with him. I would go further by saying that executions should also be public and interrupt regularly scheduled programming on all channels. Let's put this horrible thing front and center and then talk about what it says about us as a supposedly civilised nation.
