    If he is dead he can't harm anyone, He can't give tv interviews. If he is dead he or she can't do the things they used to do.


    I do not think any one has ever made the claim that cheering the death of a scumbag magically makes dead victims suddenly come back to life. I could be wrong on this because there might be some cult out there that believes cheering the death of a scumbag brings his victims back to life. So why do scumbag sympathizers always bring up this non-issue of how it won't bring someone back to life in death penalty debates and why do you bring this up on the issue on whether or not it is right to cheer the death of someone?
    T think it is because they are cheering for an execution system that is sometimes correct! Sometimes, and those that don't know that are too dumb to be voting

    How many innocent people have we killed in the wars following 9-11? Innocent people die in every war.

    Yeah. And no one is cheering for those deaths. Well, maybe some people are, but they're assholes.

    That still has nothing to do with the fact that a bunch of terrorists cheering for the death of innocent people that died on 9-11 is no where close to being the same as a bunch of people cheering the death murderers, rapists ,mass murdering dictators and other scumbags.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Exactly, 70 years ago. I thought we had moved passed that, but apparently some people did not get the memo.

    Re: Is it right?

    When I hear about some guy getting executed that tortured, raped and murdered some kid I not only cheer for his death I cheer for the hounds from hell waiting to drag his worthless soul to Hell. Then I cheer for the demons that will torture him until the end of time. If that stuffs not true I just cheer for him being gone.

    Re: Is it right?

    I really wanted answer this question that cheering was wrong.

    Yet, I cheered when Osama bin Laden was killed. Perhaps this question is poorly framed.

    The hoopla at the Republican debate about people dying from lack of health care struck me as something where people were caught up in the moment. On the other hand Republicans seem to be doing everything they can to quash The Affordable Care Act. The things people say and do in politics these days are clearly over the edge. I can not believe any sane person would consider someone like Michele Bachmann for dog catcher let alone president. Now, we have Bill Maher supporting the Donner Party Democrats to be a left wing version of the Tea Party. Who will be the most crazy - the left or the right? Let's just hope this thing goes full circle and we get our sanity back. While I will not say who, this practical liberal Democrat knows one Republican former Governor whom I think would be a great president, but we don't reveal things like that anymore, do we?

    Interesting response, why would you say that, what's your point exactly?

    The death penalty needs to go. It is uncivilized and kills innocent people and there is no study that confirms that the capital punishment decreases violent criminal behavior.
