While I reject the death penalty as a legal punishment, I do not favor proposition 34’s proposal of replacing it with life imprisonment without the possibility of parole. This does not solve the problem, as it just substitutes one flaw in the judicial system, and retribution scale with another equally terrible flaw. Capital punishment, as well as life imprisonment without parole defenitely stream from the same idea that once a crime is committed, the person is doomed to eternal exclusion from society. So what is the point of replacing one injustice with another? By and large, I frankly do not know which is best for a person: being killed or spending a lifetime in prison knowing that you will never get out.
