run the fuck away

Kill a "Grey Fox"? Do not pass go, DIE.

Look, I've got issues with the death penalty to begin with. First off, you're giving the government control over who lives and dies. I'm not cool with that. It's not about ethics- it's about trust. I don't trust anyone with that kind of power.

So, of course, PA decides to consider making it easier to invoke the death penalty if the victim is elderly. The logic? Killing a minor under twelve is considered an "aggravating circumstance". Might as well extend that dubious privilege to the elderly.

PA: sane on gun laws, but not much else.
