Arapahoe County, CO prosecutors announced Monday they would seek the death penalty for James Holmes--the man accused of killing 12 people and wounding 58 other in an Aurora, CO movie theater. You can get all the details here.
In seeking the death penalty, prosecutor George Brauchler says for Holmes "justice is death."
Really? Justice is death. To me, that seems really ironic, and patently absurd.
Let's be honest with ourselves where capital punishment is concerned. It's not justice. It's revenge, pure and simple. We can gussy it up all we want under the trappings of "due process" but at the end of the day, it's cold-blooded revenge.
