    Another botched execution. 2 hours to die. That is cruel and unusual. The death penalty needs to go. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    As long as he died. Right?

    Therein lies the rub, they dont only want vengeance rather than justice, but would prefer a little torture thrown in.
    Don't work out, work in.

    Well, except for such silly little details as having followed due process of law, and only killing someone who has been properly convicted and sentences through that due process as a consequence of having committed a serious enough crime to call for being killed. Other that that, yeah, those of us who support putting murderers to death are exactly like murderers, if not worse.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Mo. The method just needs to be simplified. Execution by gun. Simple. Effective. No pain. Little cost. Done.

    Wrong. By exacting the highest value from a criminal, their life, we are upholding that we take innocent life as the most valued thing in society.

    Well, if emotion is completely irrelevant, caring for what this "man" suffered should also be irrelevant. The question would then be was justice ultimitely served by the guy's death? This whole thread is an appeal to emotion. It just comes down to who does your heart bleed more for.
