Sometimes I really admire the eloquence and directness of Alec Baldwin. Click here to read his point of view on the death penalty.
From the op-ed: "Supporters of the death penalty often seem to me like the opposite side
of a coin. Where they contend that death penalty opponents are soft on
crime and coddle the murderers of police officers, their opposites see
them as those supporting a system that they largely have faith in, yet
if a few innocent convicts get put to death?... well... nothing's
perfect. I'll make a deal with you. You don't imply that I'm indifferent
to the murder of a police officer and I won't imply that you're willing
to kill innocent men by way of a racially tainted legal system."
