See the protectors of public safety who use the death penalty as a deterrent to crime.

These are not the only ones. Some seem to revel in it. Remember, prosecutors have absolute immunity for making mistakes or committing crimes within the court system.

I also would add from my personal experience:

This fellow Forrest Allgood has had many death penalty convictions overturned by the Mississippi higher courts. No deterrent to his activities exist. There is no judicial deterent as well. His re-election Facebook page had an overwhelming number of “likes.”

Here are two articles which talk about three of his worst.

“It started as a witch-hunt.”

And this article goes deeper into DA Allgood’s use of his cadre of “silver bullet” experts. “Killed on a technicality.”
