    Some people just need killin'. Life in prison may be cheaper in the long run, but even in prison some criminals continue to be a danger to law-abiding prison staff and to prisoners whose lives are still worth saving.

    And keeping men in cages ain't right.

    Only in very limited circumstances.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I am in the middle, so I will not vote. I could never say I am for the death penalty, but at the same time, I can understand how occasionally some families may want that kind of justice.

    Our justice system is imperfect, and we can never be 100% sure of a conviction. An innocent person can be released later, but no one can be brought back from the dead. Also, I really don't think that anyone is beyond rehabilitation. None of us are morally superior enough to pass this kind of judgement on another. Execution is the mark of barbarians.

    Why wouldn't everyone answer yes to the question?

    Some people believe that killing people is wrong, and they have the audacity to actually apply that belief consistently.

    I'm sorry. I've been a little bit distracted today. Good call.

    You could think it but it would be 100% false, some people absolutely can not be "rehabilitated" and thats a fact.

    With that being I said, to be clear, I am not saying everyone ever given the death penalty could not be rehabilitated Im sure some of them could have but thinking everyone can be fixed is absurd.
