THE MISSING INGREDIENT; A Blueprint for the Rightful Restoration of Capital Punishment

Abstract
As demonstrated by actions rather than protestations, those who oppose capital punishment, including the government officials who make decisions in the United States adjudge the life of one murderer to be worth the lives of 584 victims; or, in other words, values the life of one murder victim at 0.17% of the life of his or her murderer (less than one fifth of one percent).
 
I have written this article because I consider these values to be completely out of touch with the values of a substantial majority of the American people. In my view, this is scandalous, horrifying and intolerable. Accordingly, after providing background, I provide details of the problems facing supporters of the death penalty and propose a fully documented solution to reverse the evisceration of capital punishment and restore it to its moral and rightful place.
 
Vital to the proposed solution are homicide survivors – family members and friends who love and care about murder victims, and are left behind to deal not only with their loss but with decades of ruthless torture by murderer advocates, including lawyers and their judicial allies. The solution is to shine sunlight on the dishonest shenanigans of United Supreme Court justices, laying bare their insidious destructiveness to be seen by the public in all its hideous ugliness.
 
If homicide survivors who loved murder victims do not soon fight back against those who love murderers but, for the most part, have not suffered at their brutal hands, capital punishment will be completely abolished.  Not only that but also life without parole will be abolished by unelected and unresponsive government officials dedicated to the welfare of violent barbaric criminals, including murderers, torturers and rapists; and contemptuous of past and future victims.
