Rocktober Blood (1984) Murderous rock star is executed, which oddly doesn't hamper his killing spree. Heavy metal horror at its hokiest. TIL: While the death penalty was once allowable, the Church now completely opposes it as there are other means to effectively protect society.

One Sheet Words of Wisdom: Rocktober Blood (1984) "For every shrill and violent voice that throws itself in front of microphones and cameras in the name of God, there are countless lives of gentleness and good works who will not." - Krista Tippett

I am not *entirely* convinced that we can do away with executing people yet.

First: Solitary confinement is torture, intrinsically and gravely evil.
Second: Incarceration does not excuse society from protecting a person's right to life and bodily integrity.
Third: Attempting either murder or rape justify the use of deadly force in defense of the victim.

At that point, I think the argument for executing those convicted of recidivism in prison rape or prison murder is morally acceptable, if not actually required.
