Capital Punishment is Murder

Uploaded by Admin on Dec 03, 2000

There is a risk when pulling the trigger that this horrible fate will happen. If it is not right to kill someone, why does the government kill people all the time?

So, if the government can kill legally, why can't a teenager take revenge for the death of his father? What makes the government so righteous that it kills legally, not including The Ten Commandments as law?

If it is not right to kill someone, why does the government kill people all the time? There is a risk when pulling the trigger that this horrible fate will happen. It is a crime to kill someone, but the government "murders" people all the time without thinking...
