Reviews about Choosing Mercy: A Mother of Murder Victims Pleads to End the Death Penalty (5):
Barinirm
Ask yourself just one question: If a convicted murderer serving a life sentence without the chance for parole brutually kills a prison guard, what penalty is given to this miscreant? A life sentence? Justice can only be done by taking this "person's" life in a short and swift time frame. Also have you noticed how many attorneys have a great deal of their income from defending these people and who pays, of course we do. I say shorten the appeal process and make it swift. Make it mandatory at every appeal hearing to show the death pictures if available of all the victims that were brutually killed. Plus limit the testimony based on the upbringing or childhood of the murderer. Who cares? One simple question in this regard, did he/she do the crime?

Was not what I expected. Very disappointed. I felt it a compromise to Christianity.
Natety
Great read. Realistic and provocative. No holds barred. Heart rending and hopeful. She lays out the need for reform in the penal system.

Excellent!

I came across this book several years ago, and have given it to others to read. Antionette Bosco shares her faith journey, and allows the reader to walk along with her, as she comes to terms with the brutal death of her son and daughter-in-law. Both Amtoinette and the reader do some real soul searching, and in the end discover that it is not easy to stand up for your convictions, but in doing so, there is a real peace that can enter into the heart.
