The Supreme Court said Tuesday it would consider reinstating a death penalty law that requires juries to sentence a defendant to die -- rather than serve life in prison -- when the evidence for and against imposing death appears equal. Justices will hear arguments next fall in Kansas' appeal of a state Supreme Court ruling that found the law unconstitutional. The 1994 law says if the evidence for and against imposing a sentence of death is equal, Kansas juries must choose death instead of life in prison.
How do these people do it? Isn't Kansas a playground of the religious right -- the very same people who claim to espouse the "Culture of Life"? You can't claim to support "life" when you want to kill people! It just doesn't make any sense. The mental gymnastics these people must go through in order think like this must be astonishing. On second thought they probably just don't realize their own inconsistency.
