    Exactly. Anything less says that the victim's lives are of less value.

    I didn't say it does, just seemed you looked down on others because of it as if you were perfect. If I am incorrect I apologize.

    Thats natrual.
    And that matters why? If the diseased among the flock needs removed for the health and safety of the flock, then what do the numbers matter?

    If those capable of murder are not ended and the threat permanently removed, then they are always a threat to us all.

    Death is also natural. We all die sometime.

    That does not negate his argument that it does not happen enough though...

    You added emotionless. Maybe you meant impartial? One can be impartial, yet emotional.

    That said, many like me, support the DP because it is the right thing to do. Removing a criminal from society helps society and affirms the value of innocent life. These are just facts and there is nothing emotional about it. That said, I can also be emotional if a man murdered my child and said the exact same thing. Perhaps you should refrain from swearing at those you disagree with during an emotional rage so that your argument doesn't sound childish and ill-thought out.

    You maybe, but the rest of us are fine with putting murderers down. Look, the guy wasn't tortured and I'm confident this drug lapse wasn't planned.

    They basically use anesthesia to put them under before they administer the lethal drug(s).

    I had four wisdom teeth cut out at one time and didn't feel a thing till I woke up. Your line of "suffering" is going nowhere.

    I don't get it. Those that argue that the DP is horrible are holding the life of the criminal as more important than the life of the victim.

    It is actually kind of disgusting.

    For bureaucrats and politicians who push ahead with executions that turned out to be mistaken, it's what we call "the career ender."

    If you have a system where nobody wants to be held accountable for mistaken judgment, you should probably abolish that system.
    that's fine and dandy, but when we have a situation where a person IS guilty, HAS admitted his guilt like in this situation. Sorry I feel nothing for when the state executes someone.
