    An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

    If not, then all this torture must be serving some other purpose than deterrence. Maybe it's just liking to see other people suffering. Is that's what this is all about? It should be looked into.
    In a word yes. Even if it only stopped one of these freaks it would be a success.

    I think it's funny that people consider putting someone out of our misery to be cruel punishment to THEM - but a lifetime in jail is actually acceptable.

    You'd think that these people who value the "quality of treatment" would prefer a swift execution as opposed to a lifetime behind bars.

    It won't. The reason people commit crimes like these is because they don't think they will get caught.

    My personal opinion is that the systems of Lethal Injection are way to good for people like this freak.

    If you are one of those bleeding hearts that feel like we should some how be compassionate to serial killers you're a damn fool.

    These people should be make examples of by use of some sort of medieval torture devices that prolong pain and agony as long as possible until after hours they finally succumb to the pain or loss of blood.

    There should be a one week time frame in which to appeal then torture should begin on the 8th day, no exception.

    This might act as a real deterrent to crime.

    I also thing the remains of suicide bombs should be wrapped in pig skin and interred in unmarked graves on hog farms,and thus take the promise of reward away from Islamic Cultists.

    If you find this to be over the top tough, ask yourself how you would feel if one of these freaks were responsible for the death of one of you loved ones.
    Lethal injection isn't painful but rotting in a prison is.

    I'm not quite sure I buy that. I look at America which is among the leaders in the world in murders per capita by country, and I ask myself "is American justice and investigation completely inept compared to other countries?" and I just can't draw a mark to that.

    There has to be something. Switzerland is very prolific with firearms and they have among the lowest homicide rates in the world. Same with Israel.

    Of course, Israel may be an exception to that. If I had a choice between being in a locked room with 1 Mossad agent or 10 CIA guys, I'd take the CIA and not look back. Outside of that though, there just has to be something else.
