Sister Helen Prejean & the death penalty
Prejean finds that THERE IS NO GREATER SUFFERING , MENTALLY, THAN BEING A GUILTY MURDERER ON DEATH ROW.
Did she, maybe, consider the mental suffering of a parent who lost their innocent daughter to a rape/murder or, possibly, the mental suffering of the girl, as she was being raped and murdered?
Nope, she didn't consider it, otherwise she wouldn't have said what she did.
" ...makes you realize the Dead Man Walking truly belongs on the shelf in the library in the Fiction category." "Being devout Catholics,'the norm' would be to look to the church for support and healing. Again, this need for spiritual stability was stolen by Sister Prejean." (2)

"I wouldn't have had as much trouble with (Prejean's) views if she would have told the truth ..." " ...(Sr. Prejean) based her book on what was in I guess a defense file and what (rapist/murderer) Robert Willie telling her." " ... she's trying to mislead people in the book. And that's something that she's going have to work out with herself." "(Sr. Prejean's) certainly not after giving anybody spiritual advice to try to save their soul." (2)

The Death Penalty: Justice & Saving More Innocents
The death penalty has a foundation in justice and it spares more innocent lives.
Anti death penalty arguments are either false or the pro death penalty arguments are stronger.
The majority populations of all countries may support the death penalty for some crimes (1).
THE DEATH PENALTY: SAVING MORE INNOCENT LIVES
Of all endeavors that put innocents at risk, is there one with a better record of sparing innocent lives than the US death penalty? Unlikely.

The death penalty is not carried out fairly in America. That is why it should not be legal. No millionaires on death row!
