College students read last words of the executed

A couple of days ago, we revealed staggering statistics about countries utilizing capital punishment. Our newest report Death Sentences and Executions shows that the U.S. ranks 7th in the world. Texas leads with the number of executions performed in 2009. Without wasting any time, college students in San Antonio, TX raised their voices in protest against the death penalty.

  1. Why don't they read the last words of the victims? More of a noble cause would be to protest murder of the innocent.

  2. DP supporter Brian, why are you still here?! You never care about human rights of death row inmates or about their proclaimed innocence, only about human rights of murder victims! It doesn't matter, I'm ignoring you! :x

  5. Yeah, Brian. I agree with Debbie. You're a despicable person for placing the interests of the murder victims above those of the murderers. It is the victim's own fault that they were murdered. Murderers should be praised for preventing overpopulation.

  7. Well, Jewchai, I believe that I care for families of murder victims as well as the death row inmates and their families. Murderers should be punished, just not with death, as I don't think that death is an appropriate punishment for them.
