Does that make me a bad guy? Who knows? But what happens to some of the people by truly evil people is sickening.

    Defense, whether that be self or others, that is the only one with no questions. The other is due process, however the punishment must fit the crime, take a life, it's proven beyond a reasonable doubt, the case can be made that your own is forfeit, molest or rape a child, death should be an option. Forcible rape IMO should have a death penalty option. Those are about the only ones I can see having a justifiable death sentence because of the heinous nature of the acts.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Quite a lot of things, actually.

    War, and they are the enemy.
    Self-defense against a threat of serious harm.
    Punishment for a heinous crime involving murder for which there was no mitigating circumstance.

    That's three off the top... one could argue there are more...

    those two underlined sentences are legitimate reasons, the last one is not a open and shut case.

    I consider a double tap in the head justice and more justice and mercy than what they showed their victims.

    I believe anyone who feels the death penalty is cruel how would they feel if someone in their family was raped or murdered would be singing a different tune.

    I still think the guillotine would be the quickest and least painful. It would be swish, plop, plop, plop, plop. Done and over and the murderer who committed heinous crimes would be no more. I do think we worry so much more about those who commit these crimes and not enough about the victims. But that is the world we live in today.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
