Decent people

You don’t reject the death penalty because the criminals are decent people. You reject the death penalty because you are decent people.

I first saw this statement on Andrew Stroehlein‘s Twitter feed.  Doing some research, I learned that Stroehlein is European Media Director of Human Rights Watch. Based in Brussels, he oversees media outreach and strategy in Europe and West Africa, and advises on public advocacy via social media across the organization.

You don’t reject the death penalty because the criminals are decent people. You reject the death penalty because you are decent people.

Executions say more about the character of the executioners than they do about the persons who are executed.

You don’t reject the death penalty because the criminals are decent people. You reject the death penalty because you are decent people.

Amen!

See you along the Trail.
