Great admiration

I have only the greatest admiration for the relatives of British victims of the Bali bombers who urge Indonesia to not execute them (here).
I am becoming more and more convinced that as logical as it might seem, those of us who oppose the death penalty should oppose it!
Even for those who like the insanely laughing Amrosi and Imam Samudra seem prime candidates.
The issue about the death penalty should be separated from particular cases. That way madness lies.
If it is wrong (and I believe it is) then it is wrong for Himmler, for Milosovic and for Amrosi.
Surely we can adopt a more moral stand than this.
