Redemption and Capital Punishment

For this assignment, consider Ethical  Dilemma 1. Redemption and Capital Punishment, p. 677. After reading  about Stanley Tookie Williams here, you may watch the movie “Redemption:  The Stan Tookie Williams Story.” I found it on YouTube here:
Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story
There are several short entries at NPR.org that you can listen to here:
The Execution of Stanley Tookie Williams: NPR
For your reflection log assignment, answer the questions on p. 677 in at least a full paragraph:
Should Williams’ sentence have been  commuted to life in prison? Why or why not? Is redemption compatible  with justice? If a murderer mends his ways, should this change have an  effect on his punishment? Is mercy compatible with justice?
