Apparently people cheered outside the courthouse when the jury’s recommendation of the death penalty for Scott Peterson was announced. That’s disturbing to me. I can understand a desire for justice, in which the news would give some sort of grim satisfaction. But cheering? That just seems bloodthirsty, morbid, and twisted to me. Of course, I’m against the death penalty. But literally cheering for a man’s death just feels wrong to me.
