    Here comes the human rights blanket. It is so easy in a forum like this to be the bleeding heart for all the world's unfair acts. If we could spend the money on schools that we waste on murderers, our education system would be the envy of the world.

    These criminnals had their chance and took a life, they should pay with theirs. We should not be spending $20,000-$40,000 a year on murderers. It is intelligent, practical and efficient to dispose of them. Unless of course the bleeding hearts are willing to pick up the tab to keep murderers in prison.

    This by the way, this is the opinion of a practical liberal Democrat. I am tired of posters who make liberals look like fools throwing money at problems. Real liberals are willing to provide a temporary safety net for fellow citizens having hard times, not everyone on the planet.

    I assumed the question referred to innocent people, specifically, the uninsured that people cheered for having died. I thought that was low. However, I did cheer when bin Laden died. I don't consider him innocent. Maybe some people consider the uninsured guilty of a crime for not having health insurance. I don't.

    I guess my answer to the question should be "It depends."

    Fair point on innocent people being executed, that is the fly in the ointment. I am sure it has happened.

    I think it's sad that anyone would celebrate the death of someone else. I'm sure their is some psychological condition for it. I can understand Bin Laden, but he'd been better captured and sent to an "undisclosed location." Instead we indirectly created a hero for the middle east! Thanks Obama. As for anyone accused of murder or any other crime, all reasons of doubt must be explored or risk killing someone Innocent.
