Believe me, I'm hardly surprised to read that Senators Schumer and Feinstein have both now called for executing the surviving Boston bomb suspect if found guilty. It's a liberal tradition. Both of them come from states that have stopped executing people. As I said two days ago, as I did when Tim McVeigh was captured--I remain against capital punishment in all cases. The title of the book I wrote not long ago with Robert Jay Lifton sort of says it: "Who Owns Death?" You can also see my ebook: "Dead Reckoning."
Facts here: only 21countries carried out executions last year. U.S. ranked 5th highest.
