    against the state wielding the death penalty. it’s an extremely racist justification to murder black peoplein the usa. many of the people put on death row have rushed unfair trials. paying attention to these cases is so incredibly demoralizing and heart breaking.

    w.e. powers are given to the state give it incentive to use them in anyways it wishes. i.e. in the case of felonies, voters are disenfranchised, and this gives the state incentive to tale away voting rights from any perceived opposition, very common in states like florida. we see the same issue with the death penalty, regardless of moral or legal justification, rational or otherwise, the state gets incentive to murder, far too often innocent people.
