A Quote by David Elmore on bravery, commitment, confidence, death, deed, justice, murder, nations, punishment, reward, and vengeance

The death penalty is not about vengeance or deterrence. It is about justice. It is a measure of a nations's civility and moral backbone that it rewards and punishes in due measure for great deeds and heinous crimes. So, along with Nobel prizes for great accomplishments, humans must also be brave enough and morally confident enough to exact severe penalties for those who commit the worst deed known to humankind: murder.
