But no matter how many ways you think we can tweak this system to make it better and more effective, no matter how much you say that the worst of the worst deserve the absolute worst we can give them, we’re still going to find ourselves executing those who are poor, or intellectually disabled, or whose victims are most sympathetic to juries. And whether we hang them, shoot them, gas them, electrocute them, cut off their heads, or pump their veins full of poison, there’s no getting around the fact that their deaths make killers of us all. The death penalty is racist, classist, and morally bankrupt, and the only way to improve it is to abolish it entirely.

so my history teacher is a really cool guy but he’s also one of those teachers who, upon being asked “can i go to the bathroom?” goes “i don’t know, *can* you?” and he did it to a girl and she goes “WHAT ARE YOU PREPARING ME FOR? YOU REALIZE THAT AFTER HIGH SCHOOL I WILL NEVER NEED TO ASK PERMISSION TO USE THE BATHROOM AGAIN, AND THE DICTIONARY DEFINITION OF CAN SAYS ‘BE PERMITTED TO’”
