The death penalty is on par with abortion, both end life, big difference is that 1 is 100% innocent. Ron Paul is against both, but he has said it's up to the citizens of the states they live in to change the laws of their states. But from everything I have heard from Ron he would like the supreme court to overturn Roe vs Wade, freedom to choose until you choose to harm another is the Libertarian way, and if that needs to be federally mandated, then so be it.
Because you know states like California will never do it on their own. Libertarian federalists have to protect innocents in liberal bastions of stupidity.
People can be framed and slandered, even video can be altered these days, strong technology exists to frame people.
I used to be for the death penalty, now I am not so sure anymore. If somebody 100% admits their guilt to 1st degree murder in court then their death is on their own word and that is biblical, that would be only the case where I would support it at this point. I know this would be rare, but it's the only way you could be 100% sure.
Remember the movie "The Green Mile", it shows that ideology cutting both ways in that movie.
