Hands off our murderers!

News.com.au - AN Italian funfair closed an attraction where a life-sized dummy was "executed" in an electric chair on Thursday following protests by opponents of capital punishment. The macabre exhibit at the Luna Park in northern Milan allowed visitors to insert coins and watch the dummy strapped to an electric chair go through his death throes - convulsing, smoking, and slumping from the simulated charge. Milan's mayor, church organisations and "Hands Off Cain," a group working to abolish the death penalty worldwide, had all protested against it. Hands Off Cain called it "a demented and culturally devastating attraction, which undoes years of work on the part of those struggling against the death penalty". It was a way of profiting from the "base and bestial aspects of our society," it said.
Hey, isn't Cain the fellow who was jealous of his brother, grew to hate him and then killed him, and then lied about it to God, as in he is a lying murderer. Gee, I wonder if they named their organisation after him intentionally. What a surprise, lefties yearning to coddle a murderer and rushing to save their murderer, hands off our murdering baby!
Wall Street Journal - Most commentators who oppose capital punishment assert that an execution has no deterrent effect on future crimes. Recent evidence, however, suggests that the death penalty, when carried out, has an enormous deterrent effect on the number of murders. More precisely, our recent research shows that each execution carried out is correlated with about 74 fewer murders the following year.
Oh yeah, 'base and bestial', I'd be happy to have the execution of the scum of the earth to be labeled base and bestial anyday if it means 70+ innocent lives could be saved because of it. Perhaps it's not the execution of the murderers that bothers leftists so much, perhaps it's the sparing of the innocents that grates with them. That wouldn't surprise me either.
