I can't get over the fact that we kill individuals because these folks killed people. I'm thinking two wrongs never make a right. Police, Judges, Jurors, and Lawyers are all people. Nobody is perfect, thus a system comprised of people is not perfect. This system of injustice hovers over all of us. Granting life and death decisions onto mere mortals is and always has been 'dead' wrong. Cruise the internet regarding wrongful convictions, police misconduct, false arrests and see if you agree . . . our Justice System is way more spooky than any old horror film Hollywood could turn out. I'd take a zombie over a police officer any day of the week. At least I'd have a chance.
The Boogieman is alive and well. Call him 'officer', or 'Your Honor' or . . . well you get the picture.
