True barbarians

Letter writer Patrick Kopriva (“Execution Inquiry,” May 21) stated that convicted killer Richard Poplawski has a right to inquire about the drugs that would be used in his execution because it’s “his life to lose.” This statement makes me wonder if he thought of the lives lost of the poor woman in Oklahoma (whose killer was recently executed) and the three local policemen killed by Poplawski. The woman in Oklahoma, who was buried alive, and the policemen who were shot in Pittsburgh did not have such an option.

Who is the barbarian here, Mr. Kopriva? I agree with the views of John C. Nicotra (“What He Deserves,” May 14 letters).
