I admit that I have not always had a solid position on the issue of the death penalty. I do believe that there are instances where it is clear that the punishment of death matches the crime such as in Australia in the case of the murder of 26 year old Anita Cobby.
In Miami the jury is now deliberating on the fate of convicted sex offender John Couey who kidnapped, raped and buried alive a 9 year old girl, Jessica Lunsford.
The murder of children is the one instance in which I want to see the death penalty applied. In the case of someone kidnapping, raping and burying alive a 9 year old child I'm happy to come and pull the lever. Just let me know the date.
