Perhaps some of you would like to more clearly define what constitutes murder. Is it merely killing someone? If so, then such things as self defence and abortion can be construed, fairly, as murder also. One of the definitions of murder is that it is an unlawful killing. If the laws of the land permit killing one for committing heinous acts, then such execution is hardly murder. If, on the other hand, the state were to just randomly round up people and hang them for their color or gender, that could be fairly deemed murderous. Even in the US, where capital punishment is permissible, the act is neither swift nor irreversible. The states's governor always has the final say about whether to follow through or not.
