British, Canadians Support Death Penalty

Death penalty opponents never tire of squawking that America's continued use of the death penalty lowers us in the eyes of other countries. Well, that depends very much on who you ask within those countries. It is no doubt true if you ask university professors, limousine liberals, and the same sorts of people who oppose the death penalty in the United States. If you ask regular folks, the people in greatest danger of crime, you get a different picture.

Angus-Reid, an international polling firm in Canada, has this release dated Jan. 22. Two thirds of Britons and nearly that many Canadians support the death penalty for murder.

Thanks to Paul Cassell for the tip.
