"...They were still humans..."
I recently watched a BuzzFeed video, detailing the last meals of famous inmates on death row.
A commentator left this depressing but very real realization below...
Take of it what you will, but I personally think that this man conveyed a powerful message. Regardless of the horrific crimes these people committed you understand one thing...that they were a living, breathing person who went down the wrong path. They had aspirations, they had people who loved them...they even had a favorite movie. It makes you wonder...does punishing death with death benefit anyone? At what point does justice cross the line into hypocrisy? Riddle me that.
