    Since you oppose killing them, I suppose we could take them out into the middle of the ocean and dump them. If they survive, then so be it. We have given them a chance to live, and they took it. If they don't survive, then justice has been served, but we didn't kill them, which seems to be your argument.

    The point is to kill him, if it's "untested" and he survives then just shoot up his skull, he won't survive that.

    The death penalty is barbaric and committing a crime does not remove his right to life. An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. There is also always the fact there could be an error and it is hard to release a dead man.

    Stop appealing to emotion (a tactic which appears very common).

    We can never be entirely sure who is guilty and who isn't, so any criminal who is convicted (based only on reasonable doubt, as opposed to a sure-knowing, which is impossible) should not be killed.

    I can invert your emotive tone by saying why should an innocent person die at the hands of an archaic and brutal practice?

    The Death penalty is not a crime. Also their are crimes so evil the only punishment it forfeit of one's life. Life imprisonment means that person is has a roof, cot, three meals, and free healthcare. To me that is a more gross from of Justice. The justice system is never be perfect since we are human, but crimes like 1st degree murder the only justice that can be done is death.

    Why should an innocent spend 50 years in prison and then be release after their life has been destroyed?
