VIDEO: John Oliver Discusses the Death Penalty
In this video, John reluctantly reviews capital punishment, its injustice, its inefficacy and its efficacy.
John says, "...whether you're boiling people alive, or putting them to sleep with a tiny injection administered by a puppy dressed as Winne the Pooh. In the end you are getting the same result".
He goes to say, "The death penalty is one of those things that is natural to want but that you should not necessarily have." Which is something that everyone should understand about the death penalty. Whether or not if feels wrong to you, its very existence is nonsensical and uncivilized.
Contrast this with The Alt article on this matter that states “There is an important distinction to be made between just punishment by the hands of an individual and just punishment executed by bureaucratic institutions.” -- Read more from " A Nation of Killers ".
