In August 2007, my cousin Mindy Schloss, a public health nurse in Alaska, was kidnapped, tortured, and killed, allegedly by her neighbor, Joshua Wade. Federal prosecutors are charging Wade with kidnapping, torture, murder, and carjacking. (There's a federal carjacking statute that allows the feds to handle the case.)

The federal prosecutors have finally announced their intent to seek the death penalty against Wade.

My general feelings towards the death penalty is that it's wrong because it's permanent, and there have been too many wrongful convictions. I must admit, however, that it is difficult not to somewhat inwardly cheer that the death penalty is being sought in this case.
