Georgians support a culture of life?

After a jury recently handed a life sentence, rather than a death sentence, to a defendant who just happens to be a millionaire, a juror had this to say:
"We thought that life imprisonment without the possibility of parole was enough. We didn't want to be the judge about somebody else's life. We wanted God to be the judge," said juror Debra Klayman.

Wow, that's rich, so to speak. Suddenly, Georgia cares about not judging when it is appropriate to take a life. Funny, those 109 people on death row and the 39 who have been executed in the last 30 years probably beg to differ.

And it probably didn't hurt that the defendant is loaded with dough, allowing him to hire a competent defense team.
