I support Gov. Inslee's decision to suspend the death penalty for various legal reasons, including unequal treatment in death penalty cases. I know this may offend the relatives of victims, but I would remind people of the old adage: Two wrongs don't make a right. Prison treatment philosophy varies from punishment to rehabilitation. I think the latter should be tried first; after all, who hasn't made mistakes. However, released prisoners who continue to repeat heinous crimes and who do not respond favorably to rehabilitation efforts should receive the death penalty. The victims did not receive an option; why should repeat offenders who continue to repeat heinous capital crimes?
