    I just honestly don't really know what to do with a post that casts this guy as being the one who's the victim. I'm so far away from that conclusion in my own mind, I can't even relate.

The overwhelming majority of people executed in this country's history have died by hanging, and I would like to see it brought back. I think one or two states may still provide for it, and assuming it is done competently, it is quick--there is no Eight Amendment problem with it. I believe it was used in Britain well into the 1960's. It makes a very clear statement of just how loathsome and unacceptable the society considers murder, but without being brutal or barbaric.

    Hanging has several advantages. It is an undignified end, which heinous murderers deserve. It would probably avoid the constitutional problems that have come up with poison gas and electrocution. Because it is so grim, the thought of standing on a gallows, bound and blindfolded with a noose around your neck, would give at least some would-be murderers pause.
    Hanging is still legal for federal executions. I know of states that went "back" to the firing squad due to difficulty obtaining the appropriate drugs, and even if they are available, a blown IV can botch the whole thing.

    Not one victim did a thing to deserve getting blown up.
    **** terrorists, because **** evil.
    I grow tired of appeasement, too. And that's exactly what we're doing now: giving the terrorists another martyr to celebrate. It's what they want, and we're playing right into their hands.

    The idea that the death penalty actually serves as a deterrent is ludicrous.

    Watch Game of Thrones? You think we should flay people alive for murder, right? In front of their innocent children, right? And rape them while doing so, right?

    edit: while playing the complete works of Justin Bieber.

    So we should do nothing, say nothing, be nothing to avoid offending them? Why walk on eggshells for these medieval throwbacks?

    A sentence is not only about deterrence, they are also about punishment.

    And I want this ****er punished to death for his crimes.

    With regard to killer (known as specific deterrence), it is unparalleled in it's effectiveness. For it to be more of a general deterrent, it would need to be used far more often and rather publicly. Quite frankly, some people just ****ing deserve it.

    People used to be executed far more often, far more publicly, and in far more horrific ways than hanging or a firing squad. It's not a deterrent.
