It’s just surprising and distasteful to me. I wanted to read this in part because I think the death penalty is a disgusting, evil, barbaric thing regardless of innocence or guilt, and like lots of high school weirdoes the wm3 story resonated with me and made me glad to be surrounded by progressive minded hippies in my youth.
