Quote for Discussion: Holy Shit Edition

( – promoted by buhdydharma )

There’s a hard — this is a hard question, because, you know what? I’m sort of leaning — I’ve been so pro-death penalty my whole life — but the Innocence Project, you know, by Barry Scheck, has kind of made me question, as a pro-life guy, that maybe that’s not a good idea. We’ve made too many mistakes.

That is none other than Sean Hannity.  

Support The Innocence Project.

  1. Though it would be better if he stopped leaning and came over to the side of this issue that makes sense, beyond the eye-for-an-eye vengeance point of view.  

  2. I have to wonder if this says anything about the power of a really good argument to change even the mind of Hannity. Or is it more complex that that – or just a fluke?

  3. then I had an long conversation with a young lawyer in Seattle……..

    he changed my mind……..

    I admit that there are times in my outrage that I still see red…….

    but then I remember that death is a no take back move…..

    and so many innocents have died to satisfy our rage…..

    I can no longer support the death penalty under any circumstances……

  4. anywhere I can get it.  So this can only be good news that Sean Hannity is saying this.

    I so hated the criminals.

    Now I want to learn from them.  What makes them tick.

    So we can stop future serial criminals.

    The hypocrisy is astounding. And they have no moral ambiguity on the subject.

    My country tortures people in my name and my country executes people in my name. To me, the difference is in degree and not in kind. Both are morally abhorrent.
