    an interesting thought

    back in the old days where hanging victims were strung up, the family would bribe the hangman to jump on the dangling victim to break his neck or in the case of "drawing and quartering, hanging the victim until dead so the evisceration and castration would be on a corpse

    interesting to think about but its not realistic

    It is incredibly disturbing that your objection is "not realistic" rather than "****ing barbaric."

    Further back, in older days, there were no prisons. Once a month or whatever the town would gather in the square to watch thieves be hung and pickpockets would be working the crowd. There may be reasons for the death penalty but it's never deterred anything.

    What happened to the "hundreds" that was claimed?

    I do not know why you are thanking her, she only proved that you have so horribly inflated your numbers that it is absolutely laughable.

    You claimed "hundreds every year", and we are not even seeing "dozens".

    As I say, give me facts and accurate information. Give me hyperinflated lies that are made up off of the top of your head and are unable to validate your claims, and I pretty much flush all such claims.

    You claim "hundreds each year", yet you applaud a source that provides a grand total of 142 over a period of 40 years. By your initial claim, I would expect that number to be in the range of 8000+. Not 142.

    Maybe you don't have the stomach for the job. No worries. I'd be happy to do the slicing and dicing of the bad boys if you'll just sign my sheet saying I did some community service.

    You apparently wanted to bash me so you merely assumed that. I was responding to the other person's post, rather than giving a complete response to every possible objection. So your rant is duly dismissed as hackery

    Not others, but those who have been given life in prison have KILLED again. No one ever executed committed another crime subsequent to his execution

    You should do some research into this. The only reason why more people are not exonerated is because the Innocence Project is fully made of up volunteers. They get NO government funding. This is a completely voluntary thing that some professionals, such as lawyers, ex-judges, etc., do because they KNOW how whacked the justice system is, and they KNOW that innocent people are convicted of crimes they didn't commit.

    Only a monkey wouldn't realize this simple fact.

    Yeah!!! So let's KILL EM ALL!



    Sorry, couldn't resist.
