"And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God"
-- Micah 6:8

"The duty of the prosecutor is to seek justice, not merely to convict."
-- American Bar Association Standard 3-1.2(c)

"There may be a legitimate diversity of opinion even among Catholics about waging war and applying the death penalty, but not however with regard to abortion and euthanasia."

Another Poster Child

Some states may be having second thoughts, but the Feds have figured out that some killers need to be executed to protect everyone around them:

ABINDGON -- A federal prison inmate was sentenced to death Friday for stealing his cellmate's breakfast and then strangling him with a bath towel for complaining about it.
Carlos Caro, 39, was convicted Feb. 1 of killing Robert Sandoval in 2003 while they shared a cell at the federal penitentiary in Lee County [Virginia]. Prosecutors said both were members of the Texas Syndicate, a nationwide prison gang. Sandoval, 34, was serving time for a conspiracy to smuggle illegal immigrants into the country.
Caro was five years into a 30-year sentence for drug dealing. Prosecutors said while at the prison he staged a yard fight, stabbed a rival gang member 29 times and then killed Sandoval the day they became cellmates.
U.S. Attorney John Brownlee, who helped prosecute the case, said Caro's criminal history warranted death. "This sentence will ensure that he will never hurt another person," Brownlee said in a statement.

If there's someone who needs execution, it's this guy. A life sentence means nothing to someone who will kill even in prison, even for the most frivolous of reasons.

Yet another example of why, no matter what "innocence" stories the abolitionists come up with (none yet of a demonstrably innocent person actually executed), there will always be a need for recourse to the ultimate punishment.
