    An eye for an eye....I feel no sorrow or sadness for those who are committed to death for killing another human being.
    There are a lot of mistakes, I would make the guilty threshold higher than reasonable doubt. I want witnesses or some such.

    So we are seeking revenge. That's what I thought. It's wrong, and just because it is done legally doesn't make it any less wrong.

    Revenge? I prefer to think that they lost the right to live in society as well as the right to be supported by society

    Put them in jail, and it costs more for a death penalty sentence then it does to imprison someone for life in some states. Your position doesn't make sense if your using cost as a critical component unless all things are equal everywhere.


    You're all over the place with your arguments. Thanks for supporting my thread though.

    To me the death penalty only serves one purpose revenge and that bothers me.
    Revenge? Really? You think that's what the purpose of it is?

    All over the place? No, I have a coherent nuanced position. My first post stated that as currently constructed I would abolish the death penalty (kills to many innocents, costs to much, and takes to long to kill the guilty), that said I do believe in the death penalty, and would support it if competently manage.

    Only liberals could take a good idea (which they disagree with) then enact it so badly that their incompetence is their justification for not enacting said idea..

    This is my biggest problem with the system we have in place now. They are allowed to appeal too damn many times. How many times does it take? I'm tired of feeding them while they get to delay the system. I remember an argument we had on this board a few years ago with someone getting caught on camera killing someone, and yet it still took forever to enact justice. If someone is caught on camera killing someone, they die very soon. Not after 10 years.
