I have mixed feelings about the death penalty. There are some crimes so horrendous that the "person" who committed the crime forfeits their life. My problem with the death penalty is its a bit final and our system of justice is prone to mistakes as is our government. Once you've executed someone oops just doesn't cut it. So before we flip the switch we need to be sure. Like in this case: child pornographer John Jackey Worman of Philadelphia. He molested 12 children and infants. They found in his possession one million images and eleven thousand videos of child pornography. The story doesn't say how many of of the images were made by Worman, but frankly I don't care. He voided his membership in the human race with image one. As Kevin said "We put down rabid dogs. We should do the same to rabid humans." Its societal self-defense. Put him down.
