One of the five is a white supremacist. Trump has effectively decided to kill a white supremacist and the left no doubt will call him racist.

No such thing as obvious cases. How many examples of obvious cases are there sitting behind bars that were later sent free?

Fine upstanding citizens, one and all, no doubt. Aspiring rappers who just fell in with the wrong crowd? On the cusp of turning their lives around?

Anyone who thinks Trump did this because he has thought it out and determined philosophically what is right, may want to look at a bridge for sale in Brooklyn.

I can think of two reasons the transparently fascist Trump did this.

One--the prisoners he is killing were prosecuted under a bill Biden signed, and Trump is hoping it will stir up discord against the guy who he fears can beat him.

Two--Trump has accused everyone who opposes him and their mothers of treason, punishable by execution. That evil POS is dreaming of having that power of threatening and actually putting people to death. His abuse of power is making him more dangerous and crazy by the day.

Child rape and treason ought to take care of things.

Swamp draining

If I was the criminal, I would quite welcome the execution from being spared from not knowing another day of no freedom.

This. No one in this thread will address the fact that we have probably already executed people who were innocent of the crime they were executed for, and we have found a whole bunch more who never should have been on death row to begin with.

I guess killing off a few innocent people is okay now?

This is why I voted never in the poll.

Yes.

Because for me, the issue is 'what power do I want the government to have." Sometimes, you have to sacrifice for the sake of principle.

I believe the government should not have the power or authority to control reproduction. Upholding that principle means accepting that there will be abortions.

I believe the government should have not have the power or authority to execute citizens. Upholding that principle means accepting that truly vile people will walk the earth.

I believe in due process, that the accused has the presumption of innocence and the state has the burden of proof of guilt. Upholding that principle means accepting that guilty people will go free.

I believe the government should not have the power to commit citizens to mental institutions against their will. Upholding that principle means accepting that there will be mentally ill people who are homeless, or not getting the care they need.

Now, I don't think the consequences of upholding these principles should be ignored: for example, we should make every effort to prevent abortions from being necessary (through education and access to contraceptives) or fund programs that offer low or no cost mental health services, but I'm not willing to abandon my principles because the cost of upholding them is steep.

I'm not trying to change your mind on either topic, and you need not try to change mine. Let's assume we are both not interested in changing perspectives. I'm just trying to explain why it's not a contradiction to be in favor of keeping abortion legal and also opposing the death penalty.
