Better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6
I hear that comment a lot on here. I cringe every time I hear it. Does everyone really feel that way? Would you really go jail than die as a free person? Maybe if I had kids or family who depends on me I might agree with the statement. But, being a lifelong bachelor with no dependents there is no way I can honestly say I would rather give up my freedom than to die.
I have always questioned the mentality of criminals who agree to life in jail to avoid death. What kind of person would willingly accept a lifetime of bondage?
Am I missing something? Where am I going wrong?
