    Amazing that there's somebody that thinks life in prison is "getting off", lol.

    You're suggesting that the retrials they've conducted are bogus?

    Executing these cockroaches is a benefit to society and stops them from victimizing others....for****ingever!
    This is why I oppose the death penalty, this blind appeal to emotion.

    The Death Penalty costs money and the lives of the innocent. It's a costly and flawed system which is no longer necessary in today's society. We save money by not using the DP and we avoid all the negative consequences of it. Added to the fact that the DP provides nothing, not deterrent nor safety to society, over that which we get by having the base jailing system.

    This red faced vitriol spewed out by some is nothing more that emotional appeal to used a dumb and broken system.

    Aww man, just when I thought you were actually responding reasonably and honestly to me. My comment had exactly zero do with someone "getting off" serving a life sentence. I said that the guilty person would get off if an innocent person was convicted for the crime. That would be true whatever the sentence itself was.

    No worries. Thanks for reminding me who you are.

    Irony here, we have some of the most sophisticated weapons on earth but cannot come up with a method to kill one person. Second we sentence them to death and one guy recently died in jail on death row 30 years after he was sentenced to die. Recall the first electrocution was a disaster and we still can't inject a guy to kill him without him convulsing and choking for 60 minutes. To me, if we have a death penalty then shoot them in the head twice. Works every time. And don't wait two or there decades to do it!!

    But I am responding reasonably to you, you phrased your comment such that two of us took it that way. If that's not what you meant, there's no problem here.

    We feel that leaving a pretty corpse means it's more humane. We really want quick and painless? Bring back the guillotine.

    Show me where I said anything about the guilty "getting off" by serving a life sentence or admit you're full of it.

    You misrepresented what I said and now you won't acknowledge the "mistake" (which I doubt it was) was yours. I see no reason to waste any more time on you.
