Hard to change my stance on the death penalty in that case, since I'm already against it.

This, totally not for it, there have also been innocent people facing the Death Penalty.

Or would you change your stance if you or someone close to you was falsely sentenced to death?

I don't think I would change my opinion.
I am for the death penalty in extreme cases where there is no doubt.
So in any case where someone is falsely sentenced or I don't think the crime was severe enough to warrant execution, I'm against it.
If I committed such a serious crime, I wouldn't want to die of course but I'd agree with the sentence.

As I've said before, I don't support the way the death penalty is currently.

what about this question:
If you oppose the death penalty, would you support it if you did something horrible; difficult to live with, even?

Like the other question floating around right now, the assumed answer makes no point. (Of course, I suspect kfl was riffing off the last one, which is its own separate point.) Having ideals you would change when your own life is on the line does not invalidate the previous ideal, nor would I really even consider it hypocrisy. Almost all of us have ideals we would compromise when our own lives were on the line; to me that just means our values are prioritized.

or maybe, just maybe, we're thinking hypothetically because it's fun to do sometimes.

Its a question you cant answer unless it happens to you.

if you think you deserve death, do it yourself

Well, I will imagine a scenario where I tortured and killed most of my neighbors, to get the death penalty. There would be a 96% chance I'll say no (pending whether I believe they deserved it at the present time). If I was falsely accused and convicted for crime(s) I didn't do, then I would say "YES!". But overall, I don't relish with the death penalty put upon anyone. Regardless what they did.
