From a lawyer in Rochester, NY:
That emailer demonstrates the problem w/ all of liberal thought. Liberals aren’t happy w/ equality of opportunity (every murderer has the potential to get the death penalty if the gov’t can successfully prosecute for it). Instead, liberals want equality of outcome (everyone gets the same punishment). This is akin to liberal desires for universal health care. Liberals don’t care that nationalizing health care would simply mean that everyone gets a lower standard of care – as long as the outcome is equal.
