death already became (personal pronoun)

The official death penalty gets treated like it's the real life/death question. Cops kill someone every day, USG kills/tortures abroad every day, USG is the world's leading arms dealer, etc. The death penalty is unquestioned all-the-damn-time policy. Now and then, the question gets asked in a court room, which is just the program asking "are you sure?" Certain people, call them liberals, having somehow explained away the vast bulk of state violence as bad apples, good intentions gone bad, etc. but mostly just not noticing, get upset when the answer to "do you really really want to end this person's life?" is still yes.
