    Yes, for certain murders. There are some crimes people can commit that are so heinous the perps forfeit their right to life, in my opinion. These "certain murders" might include, off the top of my head, the murder of a child and serial killers. If I thought about it longer, I could probably come up with a longer list. But rarely.

    Let most of them rot in jail and die alone without family and friends at their sides. Lethal injection? Much too easy. Hell, I'd like that way out, and I haven't killed anybody.

    If you commit murder, you deserve to be murdered back. This is, of course, it can be proven with valid multiple witnesses and/or DNA.

    I feel if there are 3 or more credible witnesses then they should be hung within a month of the ruling. If they are ruled guilty with less than 3 credible witnesses they are incarcerated for life without parole pending their decision on appeal.

    Absolutely, we need to use it much more often and much more quickly.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Yes, if there is 100 % proof they are guilty. DNA, etc.
    Serving a life sentence would not be feasible to me although a long suffering existence would be pretty bad. However, in prison, they would find a way to exist on our dime. Frankly, I don't want to pay to keep someone locked up for life. Snuff 'em and save me some money.

    I agree with this, but at the same time if it costs more for the lethal injection than imprisonment they should be put imprison. I am curious as to how much lethal injection costs and hope someone can let us know.

    The chemicals cost realtively little, it's all the idiotic legal wrangling that make the DP expensive.
