This week, convicted murderer, professional liar and psychopath Jodi Arias begged jurors to not kill her and give her life in prison.

She said she “lacked perspective” when she told a local reporter in a post-verdict interview that she preferred execution to spending the rest of her days in jail.

How sick is this? Not Arias. She’s sick, that’s for sure, but how sick are we as a society still implementing the death penalty?

For all practical purposes, 90% of the world doesn’t execute.
