I disagree.
I am sure there are people who deserve death for their crimes.
I don't advocate revenge, but I believe in the necessity for justice.
I take no pleasure in the administration of justice.
I don't think the Singularity should be "Get Out of Jail Free" pass.
I don't think I am alone in this position.

I bet you are real popular with serial killers and child molesters.
Maybe you should look to the death row crowd for funding.
