I have a human right to impose capital punishment

If I am ready to go home at 5pm and your execution is scheduled for 6, then my human rights are more important than your "constitutional rights". Justice is where justice goes and I am going home at 5.

In 2001, the Houston Chronicle published an article in which it quoted from a 1994 interview when I first ran for a position on the Court of Criminal Appeals:
During her campaign to replace outgoing Judge Chuck Miller, Keller criticized the sitting court as too lenient and openly displayed her support for the death penalty.

In an opinion piece the Chronicle published a month before Keller was elected, she called the failure to impose capital punishment on convicted murderers "a human rights violation -- particularly if we take into account the human rights that murderers violate when left alive to kill again."

Keller, a former appellate prosecutor for Dallas County, said in a recent interview that her strong views do not affect the way she decides capital cases.

"We look at the arguments of both parties," she said.

Yes you may have a right to impose Capital Punishment but others too, have a right not to agree with you. I personally do not believe in capital punishment. I even have a blog against the death penalty which is buried somewhere in my blogs from last year. I really dont know how you can live with yourself though
