People with murder experiences try to get others to take another look at the ultimate punishment.
“I’m not advocating forgiving violent people and putting them back out on the street again. I know the cost of that violence, and I don’t want that for anyone. But we don’t have to kill people in order to keep society safe. Every time we take on the same mindset as the killer did to solve their problems, we demean and degrade ourselves, we dehumanize ourselves. We demean our own worth and dignity by becoming people who kill people.”
Marietta Jaeger-Lane, who forgave her daughter’s molester and murderer and now advocates against the death penalty.
