In “Real Time with Bill Maher, episode #319, which aired on 5/23/14 Maher and the panel discussed capital punishment which was in the news because of the botched execution in Oklahoma.
It strikes a nerve because minorities are disproportionately given the death penalty. Maher said, “We are a very vengeful country, but we don’t want to be seen so.” Of the industrialized countries only China, Iraq, Iran, and Saudi Arabia still execute people. Not the best of company for our country. Revenge killing is unbecoming for a country that proclaims itself to be “the leader of the free world.”
"Why do we kill people who kill people to show killing people is wrong."
