Discuss the death penalty

The death penalty is raised in public discourse on an almost daily basis. Recently, prosecutors in Ohio said they would try to seek the death penalty for kidnapper Ariel Castro,  Boston bomber Dzhokar Tsarnaev could have faced the federal death penalty, and Jodi Arias reportedly has requested the death penalty following her conviction for murdering her husband.

In this meeting we will discuss the ethics of the death penalty. A handout summarizing some of the main philosophical arguments supporting and opposing it will be provided.

    I don't think you need a muzzle at all. Everyone is entitled to express their points. I appreciated what you said.

      Thank you Dottie. I don't really own a muzzle. :) Gregg, I've been meaning to ask if you will be my meetup boyfriend. Benefits include kissing me on the cheek when you see me, telling me I'm wonderful (I'll tell you the same) and I'll sit next to you at all events.

    As usual, a very spirited discussion. Almost every aspect of the issue was brought up. Two problems noted: 1) Considerable redundancy and 2) Discussion dominated by certain individuals.
