      And so did the researchers on serial killers in the FBI.

      Personally I believe we're all diminished by our country's use of the death penalty, the crime and horrible nature of the person it's used on doesn't matter.

      Though, you're right in one respect, if we are going have the death penalty, people like Ted Bundy and Richard Allen Davis deserve it far more than some 16 year old with a subnormal IQ.

        But I wouldn't lose a moment's sleep over executing that cop. Or that killer in Idaho. I would happily pull the lever myself.

        Revenge? No. Justice.
