Isn't it frustrating what other people don't see things your way? That's really the problem with democracies. People really can't be trusted with their own government. You just can't tell what they'll do next. A democracy is where you can vote to have a man put to death, you know.
Last I looked, I lived in a republic which had a constitution with written, guaranteed rights to keep a simple vote of the majority from from putting a person to death. It holds the government to a high burden of proof, provides for a group of fair minded jurists to hear the case, guarantees legal representation, and allows a defendant to cross-examine witnesses and put on proof himself.
