Every Wednesday, Idahoan’s Against the Death Penalty appear on corner of 8th street & Bannock in front of the ‘Old’ Post Office to remind Fellow Idahoans that the Death Penalty continues to be applied in Idaho. This fact makes Every Taxpayer Culpable; does it not? To make claims for the Sanctity of Life and maintain our desire to prevent Cruel and Unusual Punishment, OUR Society must stop ‘Legal’ Murders including those perpetrated during war making activities; most especially the deaths of wholly innocent Children, Women and Men who become ‘Collateral Damage’. Rabbi Abraham Joshua Herschel says it best: “Not all of us are guilty, but we are All Responsible.”
