I can see many people calling for putting to death the four suspects in the #PriyankaReddy case in the most barbaric way possible. As an abolitionist, I can never support the death penalty. Many years ago, I wrote this on the issue. Please have a look.

They all want quick results and just vent their anger when something goes extreme.
