I don't really mean to turn this into a blog about the death penalty, but Stanley Williams' execution was only a week ago and I still haven't entirely wrapped my mind around the experience of being outside the prison gates when he was put to death.
It is always an intense experience. My kids were very photogenic and we got a large amount of media coverage. I was interviewed several times.
About the best answer I could muster was to say that as parents, we teach our kids that two wrongs don't make a right. And it being the Christmas season, I think we can all think of at least one time when someone might have been convicted and executed without being guilty.
