I'm surprised that people think this episode did not bring politics into it. There is a whole scene with the politician arguing with one of his advisers. The adviser suggests delaying the execution to temporarily appease the liberals, but he refuses because there are far more conservatives in that region. Politics definitely was in this episode. It was also clear that while the episode did not take an explicit stance on the death penalty issue, it is implied that the episode takes a stance is against it, due to the fact that in the original history an innocent person died.
