For some people, there's nothing like personal involvement in administering capital punishment to make them start opposing it. Dennis O'Neill was a warden at two Florida death row prisons for many years, during which time he helped carry out over a dozen executions. The experience so scarred him that he quit his correctional career, got ordained as an Episcopalian priest, and now preaches against the death penalty - from the pulpit of a church in one of the prison towns where he used to oversee death row. Maybe he'll start a support group with Bill Wiseman, the man who invented lethal injection only to later also become an anti-death penalty priest.
