Under certain circumstances, please explain
I have to say though that I am a loving single father in the middle of a brutal custody battle and I haven't once thought of taking them...
As for you personally, I don't know your circumstances. But I do know there have been cases where the courts prematurely give primary (or sole) custody to the mother (or even father) when that person is dangerous and irresponsible. By the time the responsible parent convinces the court otherwise, the children may be teenagers who hate their father (or mother). On top of that, they may have acquired some of the bad habits of the bad parent.
In those cases, I would almost be glad if the responsible parent took the children and left. It wouldn't be legal, but in an ironic set of circumstances, you sometimes have to be willing to break the law in order to do what is right.

I say No to the death penalty simply because of a lot of cases that involve convicting innocent people. We need to fix our way of incarceration anyway...there is absolutely no reason to have millions of people in prison. The reason being because most of those in prison are non-violent offenders. People who use drugs are put in overcrowded prisons with rapists, and murderers.
For murder...Life in Prison (I mean natural life, not 25 to life)
For rape...Castration whether it be chemical or physical.
At least if you sentence a person to life in prison, and later down the road it is proven that the man/woman was innocent then they could be released. However, if they were executed then it was found out that they were innocent...now who is the murderer? That would be the government.
So, I would say we would need to rethink our entire prison system and who we incarcerate.
Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

There are crimes that do deserve the death sentence.
