"Support for death penalty climbs in Mexico amid murders"

From Kent Scheidegger at Crime & Consequences, commenting on and excerpting an article from USA Today. His comments:

Opponents of the death penalty never tire of telling us how other countries have rejected it.  That rejection, though, is usually by a fiat from above, not by the people.  Nowhere is the disconnect between the government position and popular opinion greater than south of our border.
