Yeah I know australia's history but didn't mean that lol Well we are morally either positive or negative, some people function in society, others **** it up. There is no way to control that, we can only treat people doing such thing as humanly as possible which does mean preserving their lives. I believe an active law allowing death penalty only causes fear, it should be abolished in civilized western countries. The US really disappoints me on this. Just imagine people are being killed by your own government, many people can't comprehend what fear for dead really is and think it is therefor right.
