It is a constitutional duty of the juror to confess the opposition to capital punishment because the stance has major implications on the outcome of the case. As that juror, there is no doubt that I should be honest in answering the question of the prosecutor relating to my stance. I will tell the prosecutor about my stance even if I will risk being excluded from the case. It is not right to avoid the truth and risk being involved in a case where the life of a human being is taken through execution. Standing for what is right is better than denying the truth and risk being a coward. I know that the court or the lawyers might exclude me from the case for telling the truth, but I believe that it is the best way for standing against capital punishment.
It is not possible to fight the negative effect of the criminal justice system when working within the system. This means that being a part of the jury will not be effective in preventing the execution from being carried out. It means I will have agreed to be part of something that I do not believe in and that am opposed to. I choose to stand with death qualification allowing the choice of the court to exclude me from the case. I believe that my feelings about capital punishment will have an effect on my decision as a juror. Thus, it is necessary that I am clear about this from the beginning for the prosecutor to decide on whether to include me on the case or not. If included, I will still maintain my stance.
