I agree that we should punish criminals, and sick minded ilk that commit atrocious crimes deserve harsh punishments, but what is the benefit of death? Why not hard labor? Why not a life of imprisonment?


    I wish to reform our justice system to protect the sanctity of life and also to bring about justice.

    So they condemn themselves to die by doing the "right" thing and admit to a crime? Why should anyone confess or feel remorse for actions if they are going to be put to death anyway?

    I do know that, and that is why I addressed why I believe it's wrong for our peers to put a value on life. Again, would it be okay to put a child to death for stealing bread if a jury believes that it is an appropriate punishment?

    I will not respond to this.
    Give me a break! Kids cannot be put to death. You really are reaching here. Keep defending these monsters as they need bleeding hearts like you around to care about them. I sure as hell don't care nor do I value the life of some sick freak who rapes and chops little kids up then eats em. You may but I do not get down like that and if I could? Would kill all these freaks myself with no payment working for the penial system needed. I would do it for free.

    No, but I can sure show you how many people have been found innocent that were sitting on death row, as well as how many were found innocent AFTER being executed.

    As of March 2005, 119 innocent people have been released from death rows across the country since 1973 (Northwestern University, DP Information Center). Researchers Radelet and Bedau found 23 cases where innocent people were executed since 1900 (In Spite of Innocence, Northeastern University Press, 1992). Murder Victims' Families for Reconciliation, Inc. Out of at least 400 innocent people convicted of capital crimes they did not commit, 23 were executed. Execution of an innocent person is an injustice that cannot be rectified
    The Death Penalty has been abolished in all other Western Countries and civilized societies, except the US:
    Death Penalty

    If you can sit here and say "I really don't give a damn that 23 innocent people were murdered by this country and 119 others were staring at the needle" then sir I have lost my respect for you as a human being.

    The judge who imposed the sentence and the prosectors who sought it are responsible. Period.

    The south has much innocent blood on its hands. Hurling ad-hom insults isn't going to change this fact.

    Death Penalty
    I'm not saying the death penalty is well-used right now. But there are certainly circumstances where it should be. I'm not going into details as far as that's concerned because there are too many, but there are definitely times.

    So does EVERY other state. Claiming otherwise doesn't change this fact.

    How about the Governor who signed Willingham's execution orders, then attempted to quash the forensic science board's finding that the man was innocent?
