    Any offence that warrants a prison sentence of 40 or more years, should instead be met with a death sentence, to be carried out within 365 days of the sentencing.

    Additionally: rape, involuntary manslaughter caused by a drunk driver, and fraud involving more than $1M should also be met with the death penalty.

    The method of execution should be changed from the electric chair, gas chamber and lethal injection, to the firing squad.

    Such a pity that the innocents killed by drunk drivers don't receive the Grace of God.

    ...and when we convict and execute the wrong person, the REAL CRIMINAL is still free to rape or murder your wife or sister and mother. Freely, because the police think they got the right person and aren't even looking for the real criminal anymore. Think about it.

    I can whip in some emotionalism to stir up sentiment, all while making a point, also.

    Re: Death Penalty

    The death penalty is the ultimate punishment for which there is no reversal if the offender is innocent. Justice is blind, and in a blind system I do not think it's right to put people who could be potentially innocent to death even when they are convicted.

    A conviction requires evidence, not hearsay, especially when applying the scrutiny levels which go along with capitol punishment.

    I have no heart for drunk drivers. Execute them all on-site: waiting for trial is a compromise.

    Another poster in favor of draconian laws and punishment!

    You're also against the principles of this nation's constitution. In my mind, that is un-American.

    I would think most Americans would agree with that opinion. If you stand against the founding principles of this country, how patriotic can you be? Simply wearing a uniform and fighting in battle doesn't automatically make you patriotic, IMHO.
