Doesn’t he get it?

Jeb Bush said the following recently in response to a decision by the Supreme Court regarding administering the death penalty:

“Whether we have the death penalty or not seems moot. People are spending all of their natural lives on death row rather than having the sentence complete…”

These people performed heinous acts and were sentenced to die in prison, whether the state carries out that final act or nature should not matter, these people are no longer with us and that seems to be the ultimate point. Whether it takes 2 weeks or 2 decades should not matter, there will be no more crimes committed on innocent people by these people, that is the point.
