Justice: Does Killing Convicted Murderers Provide Victims with Justice, Revenge or Retribution?

Many people feel that killing convicted murderers will satisfy their need for justice, revenge or retribution. They feel that certain crimes are so heinous that execution of the criminal is the only reasonable response.

The scales of justice show two cups balanced, symbolizing equal treatment under the law. The administration of the death penalty is anything but fair, balanced and equitable. The death penalty, as used in this country, is biased against the poor and people of color. Fairness is not always practiced when it comes to the death penalty.
