Unto deserved end
We do not aim to correct the man we hang; we correct and warn others by him. – Montaigne

The death penalty. A finality known to those most disgusting specimens of our species. Many today argue against it. Those individuals, perhaps ignorant of its import, are as children. A childish innocence still intact at adulthood can have benefits for the person in question, but to let them argue policy? Let them first know the brutal truth, a truth known to all who realise why the death sentence is a requirement for society.
It is a reward won by a select few in society. Child rapists, those fiendish predators who would destroy the minds and bodies of the young. Multiple murderers, those who gain twisted satisfaction from the repeated taking of life, cowards in all aspects of life. Those who target the people trusted to keep society safe, doing their utmost to kill police or government workers.
