Hillary Clinton said that while the death penalty needs to be limited and deserves a “hard look,” she does not want to abolish capital punishment,
weighing in on the hot-button issue for the first time this election cycle.
Clinton told an audience at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire that the punishment is “too frequently applied and very unfortunately often times in a discriminatory way,” but that it should not be gotten rid of altogether.
“I do not favor abolishing it, however, because I think there are certain egregious cases that still deserve the consideration of the death penalty, but I’d like to see those be limited and rare, as opposed to what we’ve seen in some states where there are hundreds of people on death row,” she said.
“Limited and Rare?” So what are you proposing, dear? That we go through there “hundreds of people and decide who lives and who dies?
I’m sure you have your “standards,” don’t you? — unlike Bernie who wants to abolish the whole thing.
But you want a “Hard Look” and as we all know “Hard Looks” require “Trigger Warnings.”
Ready? Then Let’s Go!
A tad to “close to home”? Well here’s an ever Harder Look — the sort that can “get you hard”
Of course there’s always a chance for a last minute reprieve, isn’t there?
But what if there isn’t?
Oh well — let’s dance!
