    If someone confesses to a crime he or she did not commit, and is executed for it, that means that the person who really did the crime is still out there. Yet you would prefer to execute the one who confessed because he is stupid?!!!

    I wouldn't; although provided they just want credit for it and are able-minded or if they are taking the fall for someone intentionally then I wouldn't mourn their loss.

    If I ever had to witness any harm done to my family, girlfriend (who I wish was a fiance or wife, but I'm strapped for cash) or even a friend then I would want to use a vegetable peeler on every inch of their body before charring them. The death penalty wouldn't be enough for me. Some people in some situation deserve the death penalty. I believe there are some clear-cut cases where it should be applied. I also believe there are many cases where it has been and shouldn't have been.

    In theory I'm 100% for the death penalty. In practice, I'm probably not quite there. I'm stuck between being sickened by the loss of innocent life and disgusted by the existence of guilty life.
    Keep that "being sickened by the loss of innocent life" side alive. It is what makes us human. And yes, I am disgusted by the existence of guilty life too, but I will never again support taking an innocent life, so that I can have justification that those who commit crimes should die.

    Yep. You that dumb to do it? You deserve death. Would You ever confess to a crime you did not commit? I sure as hell would not.

    I dont' know. If I was kept awake for a couple of days, subjected to psychological torture, and then told that I would be released if I just confessed....... I still wouldn't confess, but there are many who would. For some detectives here in Texas, it is their modus operandi.

    I'm sure that side will never die. I've never supported the taking of an innocent life. I even specified that I wanted 100% surity before someone was given the DP. I never have and never will condone the killing of innocents.

    There should be a law against this. I'm still for "innocent until proven guilty". Someone who hasn't been proven guilty beyond any doubt should not receive ANY kind of torture.

    I agree. I remember, back in the 1970's, when the Police Chief of Jacinto City was put on trial for waterboarding to get confessions.

I mean c'mon dude. If someone knows that they'll stick a needle in his arm if he confesses, why the **** would ANYONE confess?

    Someone could confess to a murder they didn't commit because they are mentally retarded. Does that mean that we start filling the hypodermic needles when they start talking? Of course not. Hey look, the guy who they say killed Adam Walsh was never proven in court to have killed him. He confessed to hundreds of murders he didn't commit because he was mentally ill. To this day nobody knows who killed Adam Walsh and they CERTAINLY don't know if he was sexually assaulted because they only found his head. How can you pass the "Adam Walsh" sex offender act when there was no proof, besides the word of a mentally ill man, that Adam was sexually assaulted? Ugh, I hate John Walsh.

    C'mon RWNJ, you're smarter than this.
    Mentally ill people should never be killed as they know not what they do which is why we have laws that protect the mentally ill.
